Unity Day celebrated at MCLB Albany

April 19, 2007

Dougherty County -- Marines and their families at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany and it's employees celebrated the ethnic diversity found there.

The third annual Unity--Multicultural Day was celebrated around Covella Pond in the heart of the Marine Base Thursday afternoon. The event celebrates the ethnic diversity of the people who work and live on the base.

 From Latin and Hispanic, to African American, Asian, Native American, even Women groups, different booths were set up to educate on the various cultures of the people at MCLB.

 Most of the booths had food samplings to give everyone a taste of their individual culture. Unity Day Coordinator Barbara Whaley said "we thought that if we exposed them more, it can show individuals what they have to offer. It's all about educational and cultural awareness."

April is the month of the Military Child, and most of the Marine families brought their children to the Unity Day to have a good time.
