But now is the time for all the citizens of Sunnyside to
step forward to put your handprints on the clean, white canvas to complete our
community picture of thousands of handprints to symbolize our diversity, but
our common goal. Helping hands can make improvements if we work together. Join
us Saturday, June 19, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Fifth Street guardrail, young
and old, and in between.
