Month of Community


The Month of Community – June, is a special time that gives us the opportunity to celebrate our communities, learn from each other,  stand together and strengthen the bonds that tie us together. The Month of Community is much more than events and activities. It s a time where we reflect on our collective strength and lay the groundwork for a stronger community interconnection .

Events in the Month of June include:
