About Community Day
On Saturday, June 4, 2022, Lafayette Community Foundation, in partnership with the City of Lafayette and the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, presents Lafayette Community Day, the first of its kind!
Did you know that volunteers power Lafayette? Much of what makes us “Love Lafayette” happens through countless hours of volunteerism. This first annual event is a celebration of what makes Lafayette so special!
First 100 volunteers to check in on June 4th will get a free Lafayette Community Day t-shirt!
The Day’s Activities
During the Lafayette Community Day
festivities, Lafayette will again raise the Rainbow flag to celebrate and support our LGBTQ+ friends and neighbors.
Volunteers* arrive to check in, enjoy breakfast snacks, first 100 receive a t-shirt, and donate canned goods to the White Pony Express food drive for Ukrainian refugees.
The rally begins and then team leaders and volunteers prepare to head out to work on projects throughout the community.
9:30 am – 12 pm
Volunteers are out and about doing their team projects.
Everyone returns to the park for lunch, a collaborative community-wide art project, a small nonprofit fair, other fun activities, music by the Traveling Wilburys Revue! and words of thanks and recognition for all those who helped to make this new annual event a big success!
*If your volunteer project has an earlier start time given, please arrive at the earlier time.
The Traveling Wilburys Revue will provide musical entertainment in Plaza Park during the Lafayette Community Day celebration.
Contribute a bag of food for Ukrainian Refugees with White Pony Express, 8 am to 11 am on June 4th at the drop-off station near Plaza Park. Click here for more information and a list of requested foods.
There is something for everyone with projects and activities in the focus areas of human services, youth development and education, seniors, arts and culture, diversity and kindness, and town beautification.
