It’s that time of year again. Winter is gone and there’s magic in the air. It’s summer. Often we hear, “there is nothing to do in Milwaukee” or “I’m bored.” Well I-Witness has a few things for you to attend this summer where you will really have a good time.
These events are premier events in our community from which many in our community benefit big time. Benefits come from not only the tireless effort people put into making a difference in our community, but in those people’s efforts to change lives through their programs and services.
The Milwaukee Community Journal, the Milwaukee Urban League and Northcott Neighborhood House have committed themselves to doing their part to make a better Milwaukee for all of us. So let’s not forget to support them by any means necessary and have fun while you are doing it. Holla!
On June 19th the Juneteenth Day Celebration hosted by Northcott Neighborhood House will take place. I encourage everyone to go and see all the folks you haven’t seen all winter. For more information call 414-372-3770
Later that evening the Milwaukee Urban League will host its 25th Anniversary Black & White Ball at the Bradley Center. This year’s event features classic Pop and R&B group, The Spinners. For more information contact the Milwaukee Urban League at 414-374-5850
In August, African World Festival returns to the lakefront for one day only. This community can celebrate big time because this whole community worked hard to help bring the festival back. African World Festival for years has brought us together spiritually, in fun, food, music, dance and celebration. Everybody needs to come out and say Yes, We Did!
Lastly, the Milwaukee Community Journal will celebrate its 34rd Anniversary of educating, advocating and telling your stories on August 7 at the Mitchell Park Domes.
The MCJ celebration will also include awarding numerous students with scholarships — doing its part to advance that next generation. For any of you who may be interested in becoming a sponsor, taking out an ad, or simply joining us for an evening of enjoyment call 414-265-5300 for more information.
