SUISUN CITY — The Leaven after-school program is planning its fourth anniversary celebration from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Monday at Mike Day Memorial Park on Civic Center Boulevard next to City Hall.
The event includes barbecue from Texas Roadhouse, bounce houses, a Zumba activity, face painting and a climbing wall.
Programs offered by The Leaven include after-school tutoring and events that seek to increase academic performance of young program participants, reduce truancy and absenteeism, decrease crime rates, revitalize neighborhoods, and improve the health of program participants to reduce childhood obesity.
The Leaven, a charitable nonprofit, has neighborhood programs in Fairfield and Suisun City, and one in Southern California. Plans are to establish a program in Vacaville.
