On Saturday January 26, 2008 the Millville Neighborhood Summit took place at the Rescue Squad Building on Cedar Street. There at least 100 people at this event. Leslie Smith of the Center City Neighborhood Group led the summit . Attendees of the summit received information about Cumberland County's Children First Initiative Substance Abuse Prevention, Violence and Gang Prevention and Safety, and Mentoring and Youth Programs. I was quite impressed with the Gentleman’s Club
The presentations included violence prevention by Steered Straight, Millville's Neighborhood Groups and Reverend Charles Wilkins made a good speech about how "One Person Can Make a Difference."
There will also be entertainment and presentations provided by some of the city's youth programs. The Millville Senior High School Show Stoppers Step Team made an appearance and were quite the performers will the Silver Run School Choir, the Gentlemen's Club and Millville's Weed & Seed Youth Leadership Program. Prizes were given out as well. I hope folks got a lot out of it and will attend THIS Thursday's meeting at 6pm at In His Presence for the 2nd meeting which will feature the Guardian Angels
