Revolutionary Trenton's Launch Event May 17, 2023 was a wonderful gathering to celebrate our great community. We gave special thanks to the African American Cultural Collaborative of Mercer County and beautiful singer Dyani Myles. We also enjoyed the delicious food provided by 1911 Smokehouse and Royal Cake Creations.
As shared at the event, we are: supporting purchase and ongoing sustainability of the hotel; hoping to re-open a Trenton Visitors Center until another organization provides these services within the next 2-3 years; and, as funding allows, developing a survey of City residents to identify their priorities as input to our focus longer-term.
We appreciated having everyone attend our event and we are excited to work to keep moving our great City of Trenton forward!
