Come out for our Annual Kwanzaa Celebration
Kwanzaa will mark our final holiday activity of the year on Wednesday, December 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Kennedy Memorial Park, 335 Greenwich St., Hempstead, NY. Kwanzaa is a celebration of culture and achievements through music and offers valuable lessons to children. Kwanzaa teachings are based upon positive social values as a way for betterment of society and are expressed through seven principles: unity, self-determination, collective work, responsibility, purpose, creativity and faith.
This year’s event, held in conjunction with Operation Get Ahead, will feature the lighting of the traditional Kinara, ceremonial singing and readings and complimentary food and refreshments for all who attend.
