Portland Firefighters Ron Rouse and Jerome Perryman joined Administrative Assistant Miranda Rossetto and representatives from other Portland Bureaus at City Hall this morning to show their support at the annual Youth Day event.
Youth Day encourages not only academic achievement and an appreciation of the history and culture of people of African descent, but also positive behavior that aims to encourage youth to make positive life choices and become productive citizens in society.
Youth Day is just one of many activities sponsored by the City of Portlandand celebrated during the 2012 Black History Month. Click here to view the event calendar. All are welcome to take part in events.
