YWCA St. paul's JUNETEENTH 2022

YWCA  St. Paul’s recent JUNETEENTH celebration was great fun.  From world class entertainment, activities for the kids, some delicious food trucks, and a health and wellness center, the day was a nice way to honor and reflect on the anniversary of June 19, 1865, the day word arrived in Galveston, Texas, that enslaved people had been freed.
