Spread the Word

"Jump, jump, jump around! Get up, get krunk and get down!"--that's right Jump On It is back and in full effect hitting the community with positive vengeance. For those too young to know and those who love to reminisce, Jump On It was the place to be in the 90s and early 2000s; every wednesday I can remember getting into my grandmother's green pontiac grand am, leaving that black mailbox with Turner written across it in the rearview mirror as we took the short trip from Colony Park Dr to Rosewood Park. So many faces, so many people enjoying life--meat on the grill, coolers full and ready, dominoes slamming, children playing, the base of music and sight of splashes being made in the pool from afar--enjoying commUNITY, enjoying togetherness.
As times changes so do circumstances and Jump On It Summer Concert Series had to take a hiatus. Charles "Nook" and others, with the help of donations and sponsors in the community, make it happen again and the free event kicks off today, Wednesday August 22nd.  Summer is ending, school will be beginning, work load will be adjusting so come out and enjoy the festivities. As not to be mistaken with any other concert Jump On It will be providing HIV Testing, voter registration booths, gospel acts and job resources with performances by Lil Troy, Tum Tum, Brian Angel of Day 26, Swisha House, Dorrough and DJ Michael "5k" Watts on the 1s and 2s.
