TRANSCRIPT OF THE MISSION:
Party in the park where the United Way of the Midlands celebrates its 100th anniversary and thanks the community.

With free food, face painting, balloon animals, live music and over 20 vendors, there is something for everyone.
Cheris Bailey found his interest where the resources were.

“I learned about a program that helps people you know … who have recently been released from prison,” Bailey said.

Bailey says he has never been to prison, but knows people who could benefit from the information.

“Oh yeah, it would be great for people who want to change and are looking for other opportunities. So I want to connect them with some of the people here and hopefully change some lives,” Bailey said.

As Bailey uses the resources, he says the most important thing about today…

“This is about helping and bringing people together,” Bailey said.

Anthony Bone, 15, is visiting Omaha. He says attending the party in the park is the highlight of his weekend.

“It’s really fun… we have a great time… I play basketball with my dad… and my mom just watches and I really love it,” Bone said.

Krissy Suski of the United Way of the Midlands says today is all about community.

“This is our way of celebrating. We just make sure we celebrate and support the community…it’s just what we do every day,” Suski said.

Attendees told me that although this was their first time attending the Party in the Park, they were looking forward to coming back next year.
