The 2018 Mayor’s Unity Breakfast will take place on October 25, in conjunction with Human Relations Week, and the public is invited to attend.
The theme of this year’s breakfast, held at the James Bruce Convention Center this year, is “Better Together” and Kentucky Secretary of Education and Workforce Development Derrick Ramsey will be the keynote speaker.
Individual tickets for the event that starts at 7:30 a.m. are $10 and a table can be reserved for $100. Tickets can be purchased at the Hopkinsville Municipal Building or from the Human Relations Commission, and will be sold at the door for $15.
Each year a Hal & Bettye Thurmond and Unity Award are awarded to someone who’s making a difference to improve the community through their dedication to human relations, and community members who contribute to the spirit of unity.
There will be a new award presented this year, the Volunteer Award, which is to recognize and honor a volunteer for their outstanding service to Hopkinsville. Residents are invited to nominate recipients for that award. Hal and Bettye Thurmond and Volunteer Award Nominations forms are being accepted until October 5. Forms can be found on the Hopkinsville Human Relations Commission website.
