We think it’s important to show our young people that there are other ways to solve issues without resorting to violence. Our communities need more role models to look up to and SUMMIT MEDIA is glad to be able to partner with the city on this venture.”
Activities planned include Mayor WILLIAM A. BELL, Police Chief A. C. ROPER, MOTHERS AGAINST VIOLENCE, a performance by RUBEN STUDDARD, various business and community leaders, and there will be inflatable's for kids.
