This month welcomes not only the onset of summer but also the beginning of new traditions as we launch the First Annual Juneteenth Celebration at the Commons. On Saturday, June 16, 2018, Sweet Water Foundation will host a family-friendly event that focuses on the theme of Radical [Re]Construction; Radical, meaning of or restoring to the root, and [Re]Construction, the rebuilding and healing of our community.
IN THIS ISSUE:
Join us as we create, build, and celebrate freedom and community. Experience the richness of the Commons with Arts + Crafts, Music, Dance, Cooking Demonstrations, Food, and Fun! Special guests and performances include Mr. Danny Glover, Corey Wilkes, DJ Kwest_On, Onye Ozuzu, the International Capoeira Angola Foundation, and many more. The celebration will also feature SWF's first farmers' market of the season.
