R.E.A.L. Time will take place Friday, January 18 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Recognizing, Encouraging, Accepting and Appreciating Lives, hence R.E.A.L. Time, is a program of the Huntington County Harmony Initiative. Its purpose is to help people discover what is common among them while fostering and encouraging sensitivity and appreciation, and acceptance of people who are different than they are in some way. This program is for people of all ages who are willing to see how they, while unique, are part of the human race and so is every individual. Registration is needed by January 14.
