KHEN community radio, in its continuing effort to unite the community through programs, education and outreach, will host a “last blast” of summer block party for the community and especially for young people from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday on Third Street between E and F streets.
Food booths, musical entertainment, giveaways and interactive events are on the agenda. The Salida Community Center next door to KHEN will also be open, offering school supplies for kids who need them.
Anyone wanting to donate school supplies can take them to the center. Backpacks containing school supplies will also be among the giveaway items at the block party.
“Back in January we formed a new board and came up with a mission and a set of values committed to uniting the community,” said Leslie Matthews, chairman of the KHEN board and volunteer development director.
