The City of Kennesaw is presenting a Black History Month program titled “A Moment in Black History” on Sunday, February 26 from 4 – 6 pm at the Southern Museum, 2829 Cherokee Street in Kennesaw.
The event is free and open to all, and the theme is “I Am… because We Are.” The program features speakers Dr. Beverly Lucier, KSU’s Vaughn Williams, and Samuel Brobbey, performances by a local recording artist, praise and dance teams, and Ms. Cobb County. Admission is free.
“Black History Month is a time to reflect on the sacrifices and contributions of great pioneers and freedom fighters,” said Councilmember Yvette Daniel. “Programs like this inclusively engage residents and build a more equitable community that supports growth and forms strong bonds.”
Imagine a playground that allows families to get up-close and personal with big trucks, heavy construction and public safety equipment, cool cars and specialty vehicles… that’s Touch-A-Truck! Have a blast watching your kids touch levers, flip switches, and shift gears that make their favorite vehicles whir and rumble at this one-day-only “museum” of local transportation. Admission is FREE. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
Touch-A-Truck is an exciting and educational annual community event hosted by the City of Kennesaw’s Parks & Recreation, Public Works and Police Departments. If you or your company has a unique vehicle that you’d like to bring out, please contact Special Events Coordinator Laurel Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Treat your family to a buffet including hot and ready pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausage as well as a medley of fresh fruit and delicious breakfast sweets. Everyone’s favorite cottontail will be making his way from table to table to say hello to all the boys and girls. Be sure to bring your camera to capture all the memories.
Seatings are available from 8:00 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Tickets are only $6 per person and can be purchased online here or at the Ben Robertson Community Center, 2753 Watts Drive. Advance purchase is required. Tickets are non-refundable after March 11.
