[ARCHIVED] Town Office Closed on Friday, June 18th

Juneteenth

Town offices will be closed on Friday, June 18, 2021 in observance of Juneteenth.

Last year, the Governor and the State Legislature voted to add Juneteenth to the list of official State holidays.

Juneteenth is a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States. Originating in Galveston, Texas, it is now celebrated annually on June 19 throughout the United States, with increasing official recognition. It is commemorated on the anniversary date of the June 19, 1865, announcement of General Order No. 3 by Union Army general Gordon Granger, proclaiming freedom from slavery in Texas.
