Southside Youth Celebrate Easter
The Southside Neighborhood Youth Council sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt for children ages 4-11 in April at the Southside Community Outreach Center. The event, which gathered an estimated 60 children from the Southside Community, featured games and a cookout in conjunction with the Durham Youth Coalition and the Southside Neighborhood Association of Durham, Inc. The children participated in age-appropriate activities.

The event was a success due to the teamwork of the volunteers from the Southside Youth Council, Durham Youth Coalition and neighbors.
