The Swearing Celebration
The Swearing Celebration event took place at the County Club at Woodmore in Bowie, MD and this was a great event for all to enjoy.
This celebration was a milestone to encompass all the hard work leading up to the election. All the grass root work that was made possible by an extraordinary team to include campaign manager Jashawn Stewart, who assisted with the organizing of this event.
At this event colleagues, council members, family and friends gathered to celebrate and congratulate Council Member Wala on her VICTORY!
Give a Gift of Joy During the Holiday
Because the Christmas holiday was near it was only natural to want to collect gifts for those in need.
Attendees were asked to bring an unwrapped gift to contribute to the Toy drive for this event. The Holidays are a perfect time to give.
The venue, to include the event space was beautifully decorated and the theme was of course "Christmas" Guests took their seats and they were invited to indulge in the cash bar experience, a festive celebratory meal complete with cake for dessert.
The evening’s Emcee was none other than the DMV's own Dr. Renee' Starlynn Allen.
The evening began with words from the emcee follow by amazing music selections, then congratulatory words from colleagues, etc. Ms Wala then took the stage to speak.
The keynote speaker for the evening was Dr. Gwendolyn Boyd. The Keynote speaker was profound and very influential. Her presence really moved the room and her message was unforgettable.
The evening ended with a Song finale by Songstress Tama.
