Mayor's Unity Breakfast

Thank you to all those who supported the 2016 Mayor's Unity Breakfast. It was a huge success with a record high of about 300 guest attending. Special thanks to Tom Bell who was the keynote speaker for his awesome remarks, "BE A BLESSING TODAY BY PUTTING YOUR COMPASSION IN ACTION." Congratulations to Bonnie Lynch for receiving the Hal & Bettye Thurmond Award for her work in making a difference to improve the community through her dedication to human relations, and to the Indian Physicians Alliance for Community Service for receiving the Unity Award.
