                       Tuesday, February 11, 2014

  Mr. KILDEE. Mr. Speaker, I ask the House of Representatives to join 
me in congratulating the Genesee District Library as they celebrate 
their 12th Annual Black History Month Brunch on Saturday, February 8th 
in Flint, Michigan.
   Formed in 2002, this Black History Month Brunch has become a staple 
in our community, and is regarded as one of Genesee County's signature 
events. A portion of the proceeds raised will go to support the Genesee 
District Library's Summer Reading Program.
   During this special Black History Month Brunch, the Genesee District 
Library will honor Carolyn Nash, Retired Executive Director, Genesee 
District Library; Louis Hawkins, Community Relation Administrator, 
HealthPlus of Michigan; Lawrence E. Moon, Owner, Lawrence E. Moon 
Funeral Home; and Bruce Bradley, CEO/Founder, Tapology, all for their 
unwavering commitment and significant contribution to our community. 
The event will also feature a performance from four-time Grammy Award 
and Academy Award winning vocalist, Regina Belle.
   Mr. Speaker, I applaud the Genesee District Library for providing 
this opportunity for the community to join hands, recognize, and 
celebrate the contribution of local African Americans. This event 
captures the essence of Black History Month, and inspires residents to 
celebrate all year long.
