CAYOL 2015


Each year in June CAMOLA members celebrate their children and youth. Traditionally in Cameroon National Youth Day is celebrated in February but because of the snow in Massachusetts we celebrate in June. The flag was raised at City Hall on Saturday June 13th. Sharing in our celebration was Lowell City Mayor Rodney Elliot and our sister City Councilor Rita Mercier. On Sunday, June 14th the celebration continued with games, competitions, science experiments and food at Shedd Park. Our children our are future and we must take time to celebrate and honor them!
