Unity In The Community
Join us for a day of live entertainment, food, free health screenings, fellowship, and family fun! This year’s celebration also included a rope skipping demonstration by the Bouncing Bulldogs, ice cream from Maple View, a martial arts demonstration by Mr. Mark Purefoy, singing by Kenneth Dula, and a yard sale to benefit the Rogers Road Community Center. We hosted voter registration services, fingerprinting and fire safety information by the Chapel Hill and Carrboro Fire Departments, and demonstrations of healthy food preparation. Over 500 people attended! This annual event occurs the third Saturday in April, 11 AM–3 PM, rain or shine.
