“My office is putting the finishing touches on these community outreach events, and I hope to see a good turnout at all three of these September offerings,” said Sen. Wilcox. “We made a real effort to find something that would appeal to all age groups and interest areas, so I look forward to seeing a good cross-section of the 32nd District community at these events.”
