New GLA Member Spotlight: Meet Raji Bouchard
How did you find out about GLA?
I’ve been looking for local organizations or neighborhood programs to be involved in but never made a firm decision on any. At a party came to know few of my neighbors/friends are involved with GLA it became easier for me to make the choice.
What motivated you to become a member of the Greater Loudonville Association?
I really like what the GLA stands for, its values and its support towards the community. What do you hope to receive and contribute from being a member?
An opportunity to meet and learn from the people in the community whom I would not have had a chance to meet otherwise. This is the neighborhood in which I want to grow old in together with my husband, Brad. I would like to volunteer and participate in the community programs that not only help protect the history of Loudonville but also make it a Safe Haven to live in for diversified groups.
Please tell us about you and your family.
