International Day of Families


Community United SJ supported the worldwide observance of the International Day of Families (15 May).

The International Year of the Family was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly.

The theme of the Year is "Family: resources and responsibilities in a changing world". 

Its motto: "Building the Smallest Democracy at the Heart of Society".

In proclaiming the Year, the General Assembly decided that the major activities for its observance should be concentrated at the local, regional and national levels, assisted by the United Nations system.

On May 15, 2011, Community United San Jose celebrated this special occasion by bringing children and families together at Starbird Park in San Jose.  The event was from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. 

If you didn't attend, then join us next year!  See
