Mecklenburg County Commissioners: Do not eliminate funding to Historic Latta Plantation

Latta has been notified by Mecklenburg County that there is a good chance that the county portion of our funding will be completely eliminated as of July 1, 2013. This is devastating news! As a small non-profit historic site with only 4 full time staff members, Latta does an incredible amount of programming and events! Latta's funding has already been cut by 50% over the past few years. Elimination of funding from Mecklenburg County would greatly hinder Latta's ability to continue providing school programs for 20,000 school children each year, over 35 special events for the public, daily house tours, and numerous summer camps and workshops. We need your help to ask our County Commissioners to support Latta!
