“On Thursday, June 19, 2008 we proudly commemorate and celebrate the 140th Anniversary of Juneteenth Day!
Juneteenth Day is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery in the US. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19 that Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with the news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. If one does the math it will become clear that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, which had become official January 1, 1863.
Teig Whalen-Smith has been named Director of the Historic King Drive Business Improvement District, according to the Spring, 2005 issue of Living The Dream, the BID’s quarterly newsletter. Marjorie Rucker will serve as the Business Assistance Coordinator for the BID.

The Plan will provide policies based on shared values that will shape the character of development for years to come. The Plan will also outline an implementation strategy and a framework for community partnership.”
