The nonprofit Forest Park Arts Alliance (FPAA) will celebrate the past and prepare for the future at its annual meeting on Thursday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles building, 446 Hannah Ave. in Forest Park.

The group is asking attendees to brainstorm their own suggestions and ideas for the young organization, which began in 2017 with the Cover Our Rust initiative that turned the neglected Circle Avenue bridge walls into works of art. The FPAA says “group input will be important” for planning out the alliance’s next several years.

Refreshments will be served and the event is open to the public with no cost to attend.
