Party With A Purpose 2013

More than 2,000 families attended District 8’s annual Party with a Purpose fun day in Ensley Park. After learning about Romare Bearden’s piece, The Dove, participants created decorative quilt squares as part of a community quilt project and a calendar to be distributed to the district’s constituents. What an exciting collaboration for the BMA staff, Junior Patrons volunteers, teen volunteers, and Samford University volunteers to support this awarding-winning district! The district placed fourth in the nation for Best Neighborhood Program at the 2013 Neighborhoods USA Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
