‘Community Unity Day’ set for June 26th

ADAPT will be sponsoring a Community Unity Day on Saturday, June 26, at Cassidy Park in Bogalusa, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The purpose of this event is to bring the community together to share resources, educate our citizens, and have a good time with family and friends.

There will be a variety of vendors at the event, including Prevention, Human Resource Services, Arts and Crafts, and Food Vendors. Washington Parish has a wealth of resources that many of our residents do not know are available. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about services that may benefit you or someone you know. Education is one of the keys to success in life. Vendors will be teaching about substance use, sexual assault precautions, domestic violence, and other things. Activities will be plentiful for youth and adults to learn about areas of interest in a fun, informal way. Many of the vendors will be providing free giveaways. Washington Parish produces some of the finest Arts and Crafts and food products. Vendors will be onsite to sell some of their products.

Anyone interested in being a vendor should contact Rhonda Gunnell at 985-735-0160. Booths will be 10-by-10-feet and there is no charge for those who are promoting prevention, education, or services. Vendors who would like to sell arts and crafts or food will be required to make a $20 payment. Vendor fees for churches will be waived.

Vendor registration must be submitted by Friday, June 18. For more information, contact the ADAPT Office at 985-735-0160.
