Traditionally, May Day was a May 1st celebration with a long and varied history, dating back millennia. Throughout the years, there have been many different events and festivities worldwide, most with the express purpose of welcoming in a change of season (spring in the Northern Hemisphere). Up to the 1960’s school age children looked forward to dressing up, dancing around and wrapping the Maypole.
The GCCO May Day planning committee has been working diligently to make this day a success. However, this cannot be possible without the support and participation from the community and abroad. As part of Anne Arundel County’s Rosenwald School documentary this historic event will be recorded and desired footage and photographs will be included in the film.
