1st Annual Bruce-Monroe @ Park View Community Day a Success

On Saturday, June 21st, the Bruce-Monroe at Park View school had their first annual Community Fair Day. The day started with a parade from the former Bruce-Monroe site to their current school on Warder Street and Park View Recreation Center. This was followed by the community fair at the recreation center.

ANC1A Commissioners Bobby Holmes and Kent Boese participated in the parade and fair as did many others in the neighborhood. Khalia Smalley, the 6-year-old girl who was one of the two recent shooting victims at Park Morton, was the Grand Marshal and led the parade.

The parade began at Georgia and Irving and wound through the Park Morton playground on its way to the Park View Recreation Center.

Despite the rainy weather the event was well attended and a success. Much appreciation goes out to the school’s principal, Dr. Palacios, and the entire Bruce-Monroe at Park View community for organizing this event.

The Washington Post also covered the event. You can read the Post’s article here: http://wapo.st/SZYX3h
