People of all ages came together last Friday to make a change in their community with a show at Goldie Maple Academy. With entertainment ranging from dancing to rap and gospel, the theme was Stop the Violence in the Rockaways.

"We have some good children in the neighborhood and we have some troublemakers," said Geraldine Callands, who along with her sister put on the February 27 event. "We were hoping the troublemakers would come and see what the good kids were doing and want to join them."

Among the locals who took part were rapper ANS, Jerome Hampton and Geraldine Berry-East.

A small but delighted crowd enjoyed entertainment. A small but delighted crowd enjoyed entertainment.
