The events included games, music, food and information sessions. The event at Cedar Terrace Apartments was held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event at Danville Family Homes was held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

The first community engagement day was held on May 31 at Purdum Woods Apartments. Since then, community and youth engagement events have been held at Cardinal Village, Woodside Village, Bibleway Church, Pleasant View Avenue, the Danville Boys and Girls Club and the Danville Family YMCA.

Upcoming events are scheduled at Belk Danville on Friday, Aug. 3, and East New Hope Church on Saturday, Aug. 4. The event at Belk will be a youth engagement fashion show and will take place from noon to 3 p.m. The engagement day event at East New Hope Church will be held from 10 a.m. to noon.
