Juneteenth Is This Weekend!


This weekend will be Juneteenth.


The Calhoun County Democratic Club will be there as well.

Friday night some of us will be at the park for a bit of time wearing t-shirts with "Register to vote, Ask me how" written on the front. They won't all be blue with white lettering. We are all deputized as VDRs.


On Saturday, we will be there all day working in various shifts at our table. On the table we will have the following:

I think that covers everything. Oh, I also got some hand Progress Flags for Pride Month for the table.


On Sunday morning some of us will be there for a bit of time wearing the t-shirts to register people to vote.


The following is details provided by the 2022 Juneteenth Port Lavaca Celebration who are running the event this year. The Club will have a table there as well and will be registering voters.
