UNITED STATES SURGEON GENERAL REGINA BENJAMIN BRINGS HEALTHY MESSAGE TO BRONX CHILDREN'S MUSEUM'S DREAM BIG.


CELEBRATION August 10, 2011 Never underestimate kid power. That's the message of the Bronx Children's Museum's Dream Big program, which on Saturday, August 6, celebrated the completion of its second summer of children's workshops at community centers throughout the borough with a day of festivities hosted by Hostos Community College. The kids lived up to the message, using their power to attract important mentors, including this year's honoree, United States Surgeon General Regina Benjamin. Dr. Benjamin was joined at the college's main building, on the Grand Concourse and 149th St., by a number of surprise guests including last year's honoree, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Sonia Sotomayor, along with U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman Jose Serrano, in addition to state and local officeholders or their representatives. Parents, public officials and invited guests were treated to demonstrations and displays of music, art and dance that 116 children spent five weeks developing at BronxWorks, SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now), Freedom Community and Abraham House under the direction of the Afro-Caribbean dance group Retumba!, the Pregones theater group and museum instructors. A Society of the Educational Arts, Inc., puppet show and a performance by the Highbridge Voices, a teen chorus, rounded out the day's events.
