The community event will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. on July 28 in Circleville Park (off Route 302 in Circleville down Creamery Road). Attendees will be able to meet local NAACP members, enjoy live music/entertainment, engage in family friendly activities, and celebrate summer with a barbecue and pot luck-style dishes. This is a free community event; registration is encouraged.

Additionally, there will be a chance to become a member of this local chapter, along with voter registration opportunities. The Middletown Chapter is also looking to learn more about the needs and hopes of the community, especially youth, in the local area.
