The Atlantic City Press missed a great opportunity to share with the Atlantic City residents who weren’t able to get into PAL on Saturday, February 7, 2015 because folks had to be turned away for being filled to capacity to share a good happening in Atlantic City. Despite the job losses from casino closings and foreclosures, residents of Atlantic City still have lives to live and children to keep busy and in positive action. To that end residents like Shameka Roberts and her crew also known as Xclusive Drill Team along with Xclusive Jr, Hot Topic and Blaze are offering our Atlantic City Youth a positive outreach for their creativity in dance.
It was a wonderful time had by all with recognition, appreciation and acknowledgement bestowed upon all deserving parties such as the single mother of four who is also a college student who has given her all to make sure the group had what was needed in order for her children as well as the other children get it done. Their acronym is C.A.R.E. – Caring, Accountability, Respect and Excellence.
There was also a 50/50 Raffle and the winner, a gentleman, graciously shared his portion with the children.
It was a great event and I look forward to supporting these young people who are definitely Youth In Positive Action.
