Things to do in Hamilton this weekend
Things to do in and around Hamilton for the weekend of July 26 and July 27
Give Proof to Our Youth
The second annual Give Proof to Our Youth event is in memory of Marley J. Rowe, the first murder victim of Hamilton in 2014. Organizer Sherri Bonnallie, parent of Rowe, said youth should not be lost to the streets and should have no fear of having somewhere to go. They should be accepted equally regardless of their race or religious believes, Bonnallie said.
The event aims to raise $5,000 to donate to youth programs in Hamilton.
Organizers are also looking for youth-related business to groups to participate in the event. For more information, visit the event Facebook page here.
