Family Day and Juneteenth Celebration

We wish to thank everyone who came out to support our Juneteenth Celebration and Family Day.  We had an awesome story teller and some great crafts projects for the kids.  There was lots of information for those who wanted to brush up on their history.  And between the amazing band Project X and the almost unlimited free food and drinks, everyone who came had a great time.  We hope to see you at our next celebration!

Juneteenth BandProject X Band members include Sarah Campbell (keyboard and vocals), Steven Campbell (bass), Matthew Campbell (drums), and Tristan Smith (guitar).
