NAACP ANNUALLY FREEDOM LUNCHEON

Freedom Fund Luncheon

In March 2024, the Flagler County NAACP honored the remarkable women in the organization and community at their monthly meeting held at the African American Cultural Center in Palm Coast, FL. Each gathering starts with the solemn recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by the stirring rendition of The Black National Anthem. These meetings serve as a platform to empower, uplift, and engage the community in addressing pressing issues collaboratively. The March meeting was a tribute to women, with President Dr. Phyllis Pearson, W.I.N President Alley Avery, Membership Chair Sonia White, and Vice President Samantha Brown graciously acknowledging their contributions with gift bags and certificates of appreciation.
