The Lincoln School Community Coalition Festival

By Tricia Hall
Sojourner’s Truth Reporter

Food, fun, and fellowship describe the community festival held on Saturday, August 18, 2018. The family friendly event was the second annual, and was organized by the Lincoln School Community Coalition at the park located at the corner of Lincoln and N. Detroit.

The residents and former students of Lincoln School were invited to enjoy free food and beverages, bouncy houses for the kids, live band and music, and also screening services by local agencies. This volunteer-led organization currently has six active members with hopes of recruiting additional Lincoln neighborhood residents.

“One of our main goals is neighborhood revitalization. We want the community to know we are here. We want to eventually start restoring the old homes in the neighborhood, to make this feel more like a community again,” explained Michele Williams, Lincoln School Community Coalition president.

The one-day gathering was made possible by donations from the following community partners: Lincoln School Community Coalition, City of Toledo Department of Neighborhoods, United Way, Local 500, Councilman Tyrone Riley, Red & White Super Market and St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church.

“This is a great thing that the community can come together and have fun, right in their own backyard. It’s about showing unity, allowing neighbors to know neighbors, and kids having fun in their backyard,” shared Councilman Tyrone Riley.

Coalition members include: President Michele Williams; Treasurer Charlotte Pryor-Martin; and advisors: Kenny Smith, Leo Tate, Riley, and Rev. James Willis. Residents who are interested in joining the coalition to plan future events are asked to contact St. Paul MBC, where regular meetings are held.
