A magical time was had by all, as we experienced the wonderful performance by the master illusionist and magician, Doug Billingsley. Children and adults alike were mesmerized by his engaging 20 minute show. Additionally, he continued to walk among the children to their delight. Moreover, we experienced the gift of our spoken word artist, who indeed had much to say. Our community is filled with promise, hopes and dreams which reside on the inside of our youth, and it is our responsibility to help cultivate those seeds and watch them grow into destiny and purpose. I have always believed in the village philosophy when it comes to raising and nurturing our youth. It does take a village to raise a child and help ensure his/her success in this journey, which we call life. In the scope of what we do, the “village” is not only the immediate surrounding neighbors and businesses, but also the collaboration of the agencies designed to ensure every family is afforded the chance to experience a more excellent quality of life. In this kind of collaboration, we form a different kind of village, one that together, is powerfully equipped to impact the lives of children families and communities. We really are better together!
