Attendees should bring chairs or blankets to sit on. Outside food and non-alcoholic beverages are allowed to be brought in by guests.

“A true community is about feeling connected,” said Valerie McDaniels, chair of the Lansing Human Relations Commission. “Music is a great way to bring people together.”

“We hope this event provides a way for diverse groups to share their spiritual and inspirational messages with each other and attendees at a beautiful venue and within a supportive and compassionate environment,” she continued. “We are Lansing, so let’s set the example for the world how love and peace works!”

Featured performances will include Lana Lewis, a soloist for the Park Forest Christian Science Church, the Little Calumet River Underground Railroad, and the South Holland Master Chorale; “Classic,” a contemporary Christian and classic rock band from Trinity Lutheran Church; soloist Sholanda Randle; “Pastor Dave and the Trustees,” gospel and bluegrass from the First United Methodist Church; “Our Lady of Knock Contemporary Guitar Group,” from Jesus, Shepherd of Souls Parish; Praise Dancers from New Beginnings Worship Center and For Your Joy Multimedia Productions; the Barefoot Violist; Barb Shegog’s Line Dancing; Songs of Peace Children’s Choir from Lansing School District 158; and poetry by the Lansing Food Pantry Committee, “The Appetizers.”

There will be games and bubbles for the kids. Bottled water will be available for guests.

The commission scheduled this event last September, but it was canceled due to weather.

The Lansing Human Relations Commission strives to empower and enrich the community through diversity, awareness, and resources while encouraging involvement and support. For more information on this event, call the Lansing Municipal Center, (708) 895-7200.
