Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States

Juneteenth is Now a Federal Holiday!

From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19 as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond. Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics, and family gatherings.

Happy Memorial Day!

We would be remise to enjoy a full day filled with family and friends without honoring the reason for today’s holiday. To all of the military personnel who lost their lives defending America, we thank you for your priceless sacrifice and service.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words, but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy
