Today, we observe Juneteenth, which has finally become a federal holiday. Like most federal holidays, Juneteenth is officially observed today (Monday) because the holiday fell on a Sunday.
There are many ways to celebrate Juneteenth. One of the activities I was personally involved in was a community activity I lobbied for myself.
The Kiwanis Club of Lincoln City, of which I’m past-president and a current board member, puts up American flags along the highway on a number of key federal holidays, such as the Fourth of July and Memorial Day.
