REGISTER FOR SIXTH ANNUAL ARISE DETROIT! NEIGHBORHOODS DAY, SATURDAY AUG. 4, 2012
More than 100 events will be held, volunteer projects, back-to-school fairs, garage sales, community art displays, church programs
DETROIT - Registration is open for community groups, block clubs, churches and businesses to be part of the sixth annual ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Day, which will be held Saturday, Aug. 4 in neighborhoods throughout Detroit.
The day is a spectacular demonstration of community pride with more than 100 community service and improvement projects and celebratory events in more than 100 neighborhoods.
Last year, nearly 170 events were held on ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Day, stretching from the riverfront to Eight Mile Road. Hundreds of organizations and thousands of volunteers participated.
The idea behind the event is to create an opportunity to showcase the pride and spirit of neighborhoods and forge relationships that can help improve the quality of life for city residents going forward.
For the second year in a row, we are gathering to transform and elevate the voices of our community, our city. We know change starts with us and we are committed to creating an expanded vision and model for Detroit that is genuinely based upon the voices and experiences of all Detroiters.
The Detroit People's Festival recognizes that Detroiters exemplify endurance and we want to celebrate the creative energy and spirit that will continue to persevere. Bring your family and friends, invite the community, and let's share our ideas. We will have much to talk about!
More information: Jeanette Marble - (313) 921-2667
Tune in each Wednesday at 12:50p.m. to hear ARISE Detroit! Executive Director Luther Keith on "What's Up Wednesdays" on the Angelo Henderson Show on WCHB-AM NewsTalk 1200.
