The free Luncheon
from Noon until 1:30 p.m. will include remarks by Mayor Madeline Rogero, a keynote address by Pastor Daryl Arnold, and presentation of the Diana Conn Good Neighbor of the Year Award as well as Neighborhood Achievement Awards.
All of this will be followed by the drawing for over 50 door prizes
starting at 1:30 p.m. Each participant will receive three free door prize tickets upon check in and additional tickets for attending the Community Showcase.
