Summer 2022 Neighbourhood Block Parties
We hosted WMPG’s summer neighborhood block parties this summer. We had great youth and family participation at each event and it was fun to collaborate with other partnership organisations.
Shout out to our food vendors – Quiero Café, Soul Food Paradise and Leonardo’s Pizza and to sponsors Bangor Savings Bank and What Mama Wants podcast for your generous support. Thanks to Fun Town Splashtown, Maine Wildlife Park and everyone else who contributed items for raffle prizes. Thanks to WMPG volunteer DJ’s – DJ Jon, DJ BC, DJ Luc for spinning tunes during the events.
DJ Jon featured in the Portland Press Herald
DJ Jon was featured in the Portland Press Herald at the weekend where he discussed his love of K-Pop. DJ Jon hosts K-Pop Mega Mix on Tuesdays at 4pm on 90.9FM. We are proud to have him here at WMPG.
“It seems that most of the music for kids that age are songs about frogs and baby sharks, then it goes straight into hip-hop songs about heroin or violence,” said Hawkins, 51, of Portland. “There aren’t a lot of American pop songs that are fun for kids to dance to and are just about love.” DJ Jon.
