Unity in the Community

Posted:
Mark your calendars to be a part of the 1st Annual Unity in the Community Day being celebrated on Saturday, Sept. 27 in Berlin at both Stephen Decatur and Dr. William Henry Parks.

Events include a basketball tournament, raffle, prizes, live music, games, bouncy houses, food and more. The day will begin with the unveiling of an Adopt-A-Highway sign at Rte. 113 and Bay Street, where teen Tymeir Dennis was tragically killed and his brother, Tyheim Bowen, required leg amputation after both were accidentally struck by a state trooper’s vehicle last year.

Remaining events will take place both at Henry and Stephen Decatur Parks. Proceeds from this year's event will benefit scholarship and medical funds to assist the Bowen family with on-going care. There will be numerous opportunities to give the day of as well as prior to the event.

Tax deductible donations may be mailed to Solid Rock Outreach Ministries (c/o Bowen's Family Fund) to 16 South Main St., Suite D, Berlin, MD 21811.

Unity in the Community is also a bold call to reduce division across racial, socioeconomic and cultural lines, and to promote that the “Coolest Small Town in America” embraces such a philosophy and way of life. Berlin Mayor Gee Williams will address the crowd and Ed Reid from the Baltimore Ravens is scheduled to attend.

Come out for a day of fun, food, and fellowship, and make a difference in Berlin! SOLID ROCK OUTREACH MINISTRIES, led by Senior Pastor, Robert E. Brooks, Jr. is hosting the event and welcomes your support. Contact: Elder Carolyn Francis at admin@SROM.comcastbiz.net or (301) 641-6075 and (443) 513-4253.
