June 8th Program


1 2     3   4


Does it take one idea, or even one person to start a fire?  I am not sure, but I do know this.  The art of a community is not narrowed down to just one.  The idea of Repentino. (meaning all of a sudden in Spanish) was a student movement to change perceptions of what art is. It developed as a literary magazine in Mexico City.

Relocating to Greenwood Delaware, at Woodbridge High School, The Riff, a new student magazine, the idea of a festival to bring community together under the umbrella of art, of all types was also a student-led idea worth developing.  June 8th will be about celebrating our obstacles, our achievements, our trials, our accomplishments as one community. Our first year will not be our last thanks to you as a community.

June 8th will be a 5k in the AM, and thanks to Slim Streets Sounds’ generosity, this is going to be a motivated and hype event to support the fight Troy represents for himself and for so many others.   Amity Coffee helping welcome walkers and runners, celebrate what it means to be selfless and a fighter, and supporting such an individual like Troy Haynes.  Proceeds will benefit the Troy Haynes fund and registrants will receive the Troy Haynes Fight Like Four Shirt. logo fight like four This 5k will start and end at Greenwood Public Library parking lot. Some exciting DJ music, announcements, and prizes be part of this 8:00 AM start, preregistration is until June 01, 7:00 AM at Amity is the packet pickup OR at Amity Friday the day before until close. Registration online is also possible HERE

From 11:00 – 4:00, thanks to groups you will find at the bottom of this post, occurring at the VFW Greenwood at 303 Mills Street, Greenwood, DE and the Greenwood Public Library, a host of events for the family will be made available. Crafts seen at the Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. for children will be made available at a modest ticket price to the public; board, card, and game tournaments will be happening at the VFW in Greenwood all day, with lots of prizes available.  Activities for families will be made available to the public, from signups for athletic groups, 5k’s and health services, information from local police officers, Jedi training, comicon events, and recycled craft activities to just plain old bouncey houses, we want to show what community means involving churches, schools, healthy activities, and more.  What a great tradition to begin.

Roaming Raiders   The Roaming Raiders are a group of students and teachers committed to learning about the world around us through travel. This year we traveled to Peru and got to see Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, visit a local preschool, and much more. The students were able to learn a lot about the indigenous people of Peru and their rich history. In June 2020 we will continue our adventures traveling to England, France, and Spain. Students are looking forward to seeing Big Ben, walking through the Louvre, and exploring Park Güell.
