Purple District

Purple District members reside in the eclectic Eastown neighborhood, Ottawa Hills and East Grand Rapids. Your district leader is Judy Botts and can be contacted at: We come together to socialize and to support three on-going focus areas of FSC: education, environmental sustainability and social action issues. Our goal is "to grow connections" among our members by way of the variety of activities we participate in.
