The second annual Darbo-Worthington Peace Walk and Block party was held this month and included a Peace Walk; a Police Department sponsored bike rodeo and a concert featuring area musicians. Local food carts were also featured to accommodate the hungry crowd.
Organizers in the Darbo-Worthington neighborhood are working to focus attention on the lack of fresh, affordable food in their area. This event is also another step forward to strengthening relationships between the community, the City and the Madison Police Department. Most importantly, the event aimed to send the children back to school on a positive note!
