CULLEN – “Froggy Bottoms” was hopping Tuesday night as community leaders and families gathered for a youth block party, giving a shining example of the positive changes that Mayor Terry Hoof and other town officials have in store.
A section of Henrietta White Blvd was closed off to vehicles allowing for a DJ to be set up, along with tables providing food and drinks.
“This is a really good thing they’re doing,” said community member Kozette Wells, “The kids need more activities to do around here. Especially during the summer, to help keep them occupied and out of trouble.”
Wells was just one of the many parents who watched and cheered, as the kids used the open street for a dance floor showing off all of their best moves.
“We wanted to do something for the kids, that was our main objective, but it’s actually much bigger than that,” said Hoof.
“Hosting a block party is a great way to empower the community. To remind us of our diversity and all the other things that make Cullen such a special place.”
