The bad things that happen always make the rounds quickly, but the good things many times go unnoticed. Last night was one such event.
The Hartford Community Center hosted a neighborhood get-together last night at the Niles Street Coomunity Garden. The event was well attended by many members of the community and a few Council candidates also. The grills were going and everyone seemed to be enjoying the beautiful weather.
The highlught was the "ABC Drillteam". The team is apparently the creation of the Hartford Community Center and is a program that has, by the looks of it. quite a few of Hartford's young people involved. Their performance was impressive as the drillteam pulled off thier moves to the beats of several young men and the pounding rhythms of their marching band drums and cymbals.
It was good seeing both the youth involved and the adults coaching them taking pride in their performance. The crowd seemed pretty impressed with the performance also.
It just goes to show that there are some good programs guiding our youth and taking them in the right direction.
Congratulations to the Hartford Community Center for building neighborhood relationships and making a difference in the community, we need more of this.
