We had such a good time last year. We’re going to do it again.
The Second Annual Community Celebration of African American history will be here soon and it promises to be a fun one. The event will be held on February 26, that’s the last Saturday in February, at Lake Forest High School.
Plan on coming for dinner which will be lovingly prepared by our food service employees. Proceeds from the dinner go to scholarships for Lake Forest graduates. Dinner starts at 5:30 and the menu will include baked chicken, ham, sweet potatoes, collard greens, macaroni & cheese, potato salad, cornbread, sweet potato crunch, peach cobbler and fresh fruit. Cost is $8 for adults and $5 for children if paid for in advance. Reservations can be made through any school office. Dinner tickets at the door will cost $2 more.
The program, which begins at 7pm, features student performers from every school in the district. They’ll be singing, playing instruments, reading poetry, stepping and more. There will be guest performances from some of the best singers in the Delaware State University music department.
Finally, we will recognize one of our finest teachers with the Obsidian Spartan Award. This special tribute goes to someone who has done much to contribute to the success of all children, but especially minority children in the Lake Forest community.
We hope to see you there.
