FOLAR has functioned as a volunteer led operation for its first 14 years and is now focused on future organizational sustainability to enable and ensure its continued positive impact on the quality of life of the residents and visitors of jurisdictions along the Lower Appomattox River. The founding members of the Board of Directors, who have invested enormous personal time and effort, are committed to developing the operation to the next level of “Business” excellence.
