Tonight’s the night of the 4th annual HUG (Hearts United Gathering) hosted by One Community United. The event will take place at 6 pm in the Wilder Center of Rome First United Methodist Church, 202 East 3rd Avenue. Doors will open at 5 pm.
The keynote speaker for this year will be Peggy Wallace Kennedy, daughter of notorious segregationist George Wallace. Kennedy’s son’s reaction to his grandfather’s exploits prompted her to become an activist on behalf of racial reconciliation, says Monica Sheppard of One Community United.
HUG IV is free and open to the community. Musical accompaniment will be provided by the Rome Symphony Orchestra.
