    Great to see you Thursday. Your project is stunning. I’m in your court to lend any effort to help concept to construction. Frayser roots run deep

      MICHAEL-
      It was good to see someone from my old school/ community. This unfortunately doesn’t happen often. Lot’s of great times.

      We are hopeful that this could become a model community that can be reproduced in other areas that have current existing infrastructure. I think Frayser is a great target for same.

      Please stay in touch & help share our proposed. I am sure we can use your help moving forward…
      Thanks!!!

    The video is impressive and motivating. I’m sorry I missed the walking tour this past weekend. I look forward to French Fort being a frequent destination via bicycle.

    Dear Mr. Crews, How can we thank you for speaking to our civic Exchange Club of East Memphis? Wow, what a project. Not only do you have a passion for the French Fort Project but what a boom for the city of Memphis and a tourism attraction. Thank you!! Visionaries like you make Memphis, our city on the bluff, the unique place to live that it is. Vicki Fioranelli

      VICKI-
      It was my pleasure. I enjoy sharing my ideas to take this hidden gem of an area and creating something that will help our community in so many ways. I still have a ways to go but it’s hard to believe that my proposed want be adopted.
      It will be a fun place too! both for visitors & local.
      Thanks, & keep in touch…

    My husband, Matt, and I attended the Friends of the Fort party in October. What a great time! We got married at the Metal Museum in October of 2012, so the French Fort area is very special to us. We’ve always said it’s Memphis’s best-kept secret, Lauren, we stuck around and chatted with you for awhile at the party. We came to the tour this past Sunday and had a blast. We didn’t get a chance to talk to you though with all the rain – we were a little eager to get to the car and dry off a bit! Just wanted to let you know we are so excited about the redevelopment, and you’ve got our full support. I work in fundraising and event planning, and I’d love to help out in any way I can. Please let us know what we can do! We’ll see you at the next party!
