“This weekend is a chance to show them individuals that came from their same background doing something positive and concerned about their well being”.
Festivities for the weekend-long event are scheduled to include an opening ceremony dinner and social hour, a basketball clinic, games and prize packs for children, a community park day where local talents will get chance to show off their skills.
