FEBRUARY OCDW MEETING
February 23rd,from 7-9pm in Hillsborough at the HeadStart Training Center, Building D, in Fairview.
OCDW's first 2012 program will celebrate Black History Month. On February 23rd, learn about Fairview, an historically African-American community, by joining us for Fairview: Its Heritage and Bright Future. We'll hear from residents and community leaders about how this Hillsborough neighborhood began, its 20th century history of challenges and triumphs and its 21st century future as Fairview engages residents and collaborates with the larger Hillsborough community to envigorate and strengthen the neighborhood.
The program panel will include long-time Democratic leader and actvist Dorothy Johnson, pastor and community leader Rev. William Richardson of First Community Baptist Church in Hillsborough, and Gwen Jordan, president of the Northern Orange NAACP and OCDW member. OCDW President Renee Price will moderate the panel discussion.
We look forward to seeing you at 7pm in the Hillsborough HeadStart training center meeting room (Building D) in Fairview, a proud example of how American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds are benefiting residents in Orange County.
