Resource Opportunity Fair in Wilmington, NC on May 13, 2017
This was a wonderful opportunity to meet many of the other groups active in the Wilmington community – Moms in Morning, Phoenix, Coastal Horizens, BlueRibbonCommittee, Wilmington Faiths Against Gun Violence, Kids Making It, Dream and many others. They are all striving to improve the quality of life for all citizens in this city. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was also a participant with a table and several representatives there to discuss with attendees how to keep children safe from gun violence. I gave the BeSmart presentation and actually had a couple of attendees indicate an interest in having the presentation given to their groups. Reaching out to the community and making the local residence aware of the resources available to them that may help them is very valuable to all. A change in venue to indoors due to a threatening thunder storm minimized the attendance but did not dampen the enthusiasm of the participants. Many thanks to Bernardine Fulton, Don Arabian, Chuck Caper, Rebecca Blake and Gail Fulton who spearheaded this event. It was Bernardine’s vision that made it all actually happen. You can make a difference – let your voice be heard!
