(3/14/19) First responders and community leaders gathered this morning for breakfast at Barkdull Faulk Elementary.
The meal was prepared on behalf of the My Mind is a Pearl organization in celebration of their 6th annual H.A.P.P.Y week.
The acronym H.A.P.P.Y. stands for Hilarious, Affectionate, Passionate People Yearning to serve others.
The week is set aside to spread joy and service to the community and community leaders.
My Mind is a Pearl founder and C.E.O. Cleoria Dunn says that her goal is to spread infectious happiness to as many people as she can.
“My goal for H.A.P.P.Y. week is that it will be in every school, and not only every school but one day it will also be national. That we all will be serving others in our community.”
This year’s theme is reading and researching to stop the violence.
First responders and community leaders such as Mayor Jamie Mayo, the Monroe Fire Department, and the Well Spring were in attendance.
After breakfast, they read books to students at Barkdull Faulk.
