We will have a Children’s village with a drumming class and the first one hundred children will receive a “Davis goodie” bag filled with educational materials, toys, and coupons from local businesses. The day is filled with dancing, singing, poetry, a vendor market, and more. In honor of Baba Chuck Davis donated canned foods and toiletry items will be given to a local non-profit.
