Message from Carol Ireland VIP
This year, our Haverhill VIP (Violence Intervention & Prevention) Team is collaborating with the neighborhood group, Urban Kindness and the Mt. Washington Alliance. The event is free and open to the entire community. The event strives to raise awareness and celebrate the commitment of efforts within our community that address and prevent the impact of violence. Many students will be working hard to promote, perform and assist with the day’s activities. It is youth led by our VIP and Jr. VIP Teams and provides a tremendous opportunity to highlight strong school-community engagement!
The walk begins at 1:00 pm, rain or shine, at Swasey Field and ends at Silver Hill Elementary School with a celebration for all. We are planning to have music, snacks, zumba, games, youth speakers, face & pumpkin painting and info on community resources at the celebration. We will also be throwing color powder at 3 different times along the route.. The kids LOVED that last year!
