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.
