Indian Trail Town Hall Closed in Observance of Juneteenth

Juneteenth

The Indian Trail Town Hall will be closed on Friday, June 18, in observance of Juneteenth. We will resume normal business hours on Monday, June 21, at 9 a.m.

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Major General Gordan Granger, arrived in Galveston, Texas, with news that the civil war had ended and the enslaved were free.

African Americans who had been slaves in the Southwest celebrated June 19, commonly known as Juneteenth Independence Day. It is now celebrated in 46 states and the District of Columbia as a special day of observance in recognition of the emancipation of all slaves in the United States; however, it has yet to be declared a national holiday.

In January, the Indian Trail Town Council passed a resolution that officially designates June 19 as Juneteenth Independence Day in Indian Trail. It recognizes the historical significance of the holiday to the United States.

To celebrate the holiday, Indian Trail has partnered with the Trinity Wellness Community, City of Monroe Parks and Recreation and several other organizations for the Juneteenth Family Fun Festival on Saturday, June 19, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Belk Tonawanda Park in Monroe. It will be a day filled with food, music and cultural activities to celebrate the end of slavery in the United States.
