KLEK 102.5 FM is hosting a Juneteenth Celebration on June 16, 2018 from 10 am-3 pm at University Heights Lions Club Park. The theme for this year is, “REMEMBERING THE PAST TO BUILD A BETTER FUTURE”.
Juneteenth is a national day of observance in many states as a recognition of the ending of slavery by way of the Emancipation Proclamation. June 19, 1865 was the day the last group of slaves in Galveston, TX were notified that they were officially free. Since then, annual celebrations have taken place across the United States to commemorate that day.
KLEK has partnered with local businesses, organizations, churches and community members to hopefully make this a spectacular event. There will be food, fun activities for the kids to enjoy and various speakers to give some historical information as well as address the community on topics such as Diversity, Inclusion, Unity, & Freedom.
If you would like to make a donation or for more information, email the station at [email protected] or call 870.203.9951.
We would like to thank everyone in advance for your generous contributions to this event.
