Divine Revelations Ministries, Inc. (DRMI) is excited and honored to host the First Annual Frenchtown Renaissance event on Saturday, May 14, 2022, from 12 noon to 6 pm in the community of Frenchtown, near the Carter Howell Strong Park (500-598 N. Copeland St., Tallahassee, FL 32301).
This unique event addresses the health and wellbeing of Tallahassee neighborhoods, namely Frenchtown, and has been approved by the Tallahassee Community Redevelopment Agency under the Greater Frenchtown Southside special events grant and is being co-sponsored by the Big Bend Area Health Education Center (AHEC).
We have now entered year three of the pandemic, and Tallahassee, like other communities across the country, is enhancing recovery efforts for its citizens, while addressing the unique issues that each neighborhood faces. As you are probably aware, Frenchtown residents, businesses and other stakeholders successfully developed and advocated for the Frenchtown Neighborhood First Plan, which is in full implementation!
The Frenchtown Renaissance is designed to ignite the mind, elevate the body and nourish the spirit by focusing on three (3) major areas to enhance the health, safety and economic stability of the Frenchtown community. The word renaissance means rebirth or renewal, and this event is designed to do just that. This free family-centered event is open to the general public, and will feature Frenchtown and local entrepreneurs, local food vendors, gardeners/climate specialists, community agencies, and potential employers; a panel discussion – Community Conversations: Safety & Crime Prevention featuring survivors, Assistant Sheriff Argatha Gilmore, and other law enforcement and agencies that address these issues in our community. Headlining the music portion of the event is Tallahassee native and Grammy Award winning songstress Kendra Foster, renowned trumpeter Dr. Longineu Parsons & Musicians, songstress & actress Star Swain, dynamic duo Saylor Dollar, Rebekah Hair-Stewart, gospel artist Minister Delarryo Dunklin, and other locally grown talent. And let’s not forget, fun activities for kids.
Our goal is to empower citizens through awareness, education and experiential learning, to take action in rebounding from the pandemic and its impact; and to just come out to fellowship with neighbors and friends in one of the most culturally rich historic neighborhoods in Tallahassee.
