Black history program and taste of the community

February is Black History month, and Carver Recreation Center is celebrating.

On Feb. 23 from 4-5 p.m., the Carver Recreation Center will host a black history presentation and a “taste of the community” to raise money for children at the parks and recreation center to go to Washington D.C.

The “taste of the community” will feature foods from the Johnson City community. Food will be provided by parents of children going on the D.C. trip. This is a great way to try locally made dishes while helping others. A “tasting ticket” is required to partake in the food.

The black history presentation will honor Johnson City community members. The center is presenting awards to people who have made donations to the recreation center and made a difference in the area. Herb Greenlee, event organizer, said people will receive plaques for their efforts, service and accomplishments.

The program is free, and the tasting requires a $10 ticket. The ticket will go toward the Washington D.C. trip.

The event will be held at the Carver Recreation Center, 322 West Watauga Ave.,
Johnson City.
