programs for adults and children of all ages. Admission is free.

This event is a celebration of
the 30th anniversary of the

Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie.  A film, "Jimena," will be shown at 2:35pm

afternoon stands to be a fine and fun event. Come out to show your support
for our basic American and international values of unity in diversity, e
pluribus unum.
