Juneteenth Celebration Wise County Texas, June 17th was modest but rewarding

RECAP:  The Wise County Democratic Party supported the Juneteenth celebration in Decatur on June 17th.  The day began with Rita and Janet joining a small parade through town driving a decorated Mini Cooper sporting one of our favorite slogans, “Great minds discuss ideas!”  Following the parade, we anchored the block party as the lone “vendor” booth from 1 PM until 7 PM at Louida “Big Mama” Willis Park, where we provided a beanbag toss game for the kids and voter registration services for the adults.  We also provided the event organizers with a generous supply of water and soda to share with participants.

Below are a few pictures from the event.  You can see more in the “Latest Events” photo viewer located at the bottom-right of the page.




The Wise County Democratic Party (WCDP) will be supporting the Juneteenth Celebration in Decatur, Texas, on June 17, 2017.  We will host a voter registration booth at the block party, along with a bean bag toss competition for attendees.  Please come out and support this celebration.

All Democrats are welcome to come, please join us!
