PRINCEVILLE — PRINCEVILLE — In hopes of uniting the town, four East Carolina University students are sponsoring a Family Fun Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Princeville Museum.
The sponsorship is part of ECU’s social work curriculum Community Intervention Progam for seniors Tracy Hyde of Tarboro, Tim Barnes of Elm City, Daniel Joyner of Rocky Mount and Asia Joyner of Greenville.
"We felt that a day of positive activities for community members would help bring back the sense of belonging and cohesion to the town," Hyde said. "Also, we chose to have the event at the Princeville Museum located in the old town hall.
We hope this will offer a chance for people to learn and understand the historic value that the town of Princeville has to offer. We are really looking forward to hosting this event and hope for a great turn out. Our goal is to bring the community back together and perserve the town’s history." (More)

Note: This does not surprise me because there are so many folks who can not accept having a black POTUS and bringing it closer to home a black coach at the college. It is so sad that this is the mentality of many folks who can’t handle change. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher
