The Annual Community Health Fair is held in a local neighborhood with support and participation from within the community. Each year we have a specific health challenge that we emphasize. In 2012, the focus was obesity.
This Annual Christmas event is enjoyed by the senior residents at Big Bethel. We partner with the Urban League's Young Professional s to decorate the facility's recreation area. In addition, we join with the residents in a time of fun and festivities including eating, playing card games and just socializing with the residents.
The Guild works hand in hand with the ULGA Affiliate in the areas of advocacy, outreach and civic engagement.
Our motto is "When The Urban League Calls…, The Guild Will Answer"
