Command Performance: The YMA at Alamance Achieves
The organizers of the Impact Alamance community initiative, Alamance Achieves, were present at the ribbon-cutting in North Park. Alamance Achieves is focused on strengthening and coordinating Alamance County organizations’ services for children. When they witnessed the performance of the Young Musicians at North Park, the Impact Alamance leadership invited YMA to perform one of their songs at the Launch of Alamance Achieves on November 29. The song the YMA students sing, UJIMA, celebrates and urges the ideas of working together, helping each other, solving problems, responsibility, and building community:
Oh, let us work together.
Oh, let us help each other.
Ujima: let us work together
To make better our community.
We can solve our problems
With collective work and responsibility.
Which fits right in with the entire mission of Alamance Achieves! We are all very much looking forward to this opportunity to contribute to this launch!!
