A special congratulations to Stephanie Kaytel, graduate of Paul Robeson High School's technology program, and creator of "Make Talk Work." Take a look:
Bailey's cafe is a center for educational and cultural activity. It's goals are to provide youth with an opportunity to connect to positive adults and peers; provide youth and seniors with outlets for creative expression; support good health and nutrition; and to provide meaningful community service opportunities.

The day began with a parade down Empire Boulevard. Families then had the opportunity to eat and play together during the picnic. Activities and entertainment included face painting by the local youth volunteers, horseback rides, moon bounces, martial arts demonstrations, and puppet shows. The Leadership Training Institute worked hard to organize performers, resources, and volunteers for the fair. Willard Hawkins, one of the Leadership Training Institute members, was "overwhelmed" at Family Day Picnic, seeing people interact in a way that normally does not happen in Crown Heights.
