Kwanzaa Karamu 2015

Grand Crossing Park Neighborhood Network
"...What YOU can do for YOUR Neighborhood"
Dearest Neighbor and Stakeholder,
Please be advised our Kwanzaa observation this year will be held on the last day(Imani), which is New Year's day. Imani is theday of Faith, confidence and trust in community standards, obligations and allegiance to each other as neighbors, under God. Imani is the culmination of Kwanzaa and the beginning of faith for the New Year.
2016 promises to bring change and is full of challenges. Important elections are forth coming, the city is facing sweeping changes on government, and policing, as the wave of wicked public violence has yet to be brought under control.
We face these challenges together as neighbors working to improve our collective quality of life. We have hung in there for several years now and look to make the improvements which will make a difference in our lives. Our communal gathering continues our tradition to work together, set a tone and place our efforts in perspective.
As usual we are accepting door prizes for our raffle -gifts from neighborhood groups and organizations of about $40 dollars in value. This tradition has always brought a special touch to the end of the evening. And, as always we encourage everyone to network vigorously with our extended neighborhood advocates in the name of building a greater public safety in our community.
Also, as usual we need volunteers to step forward and help us pull together the final details. Please let us know where you can help out.
Please join us;
