Dec. 19th Affordable Housing Advisory Committee Meeting Postponed; New Date to Be Announced

Special Message from Affordable Housing Advisory Committee Co-Chair Kerrie Wilson:  I am writing to share the sad news that founding AHAC member and longtime affordable housing and community activist Bill Hanks passed away on Monday.    Bill’s funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 11 AM at Lewinsville Presbyterian Church, 1724 Chain Bridge Road, McLean, VA. 

Out of respect for Bill and understanding many AHAC members may want to attend his services, tomorrow’s (12/19/14) meeting scheduled AHAC meeting will be postponed to January.  We will be announcing the new date as soon as that information becomes available.  In the meantime, please keep Bill’s family and many friends in your thoughts.

Thank you.

Kerrie Wilson
