Violence Action

As a way to show our concern for community violence what a great thing it would be if all of you joined me as veterans with our banner and Colors to participate with St Sabina Church who is hosting their last community march against violence on Friday evening. This is the last march of the summer.  Father Mike is asking members, families and friends to make a special effort to join them at 6:45 pm.  Joining us will be Quentin Richardson, Isiah Thomas, and J’Marcus Webb.

This Saturday, the historic “Peace Tournament” will take place in the gym.  Doors will open at 12 pm.  Special guests include: Joakim Noah, Isaih Thomas, Bobby Simmons, J’Marcus Webb, Quentin Richardson, Zach Randolph, and Jabari Parker.

THanks Much!
