GREENBURGH CELEBRATES JUNETEENTH Friday with Motorcade at noon and zoom discussion of the 400 years project   at 8 PM (link below)


Greenburgh Town Board members Gina Jackson, Ken Jones, Francis Sheehan, Diana Juettner and Supervisor Paul Feiner invite you to....


Celebrate Juneteenth with the Town of Greenburgh by attending our Juneteenth Community Motorcade this Friday, June 19th , starting at 12pm.

 

This is a special community observance of African American liberation and heritage commemorates the day (June 19, 1865) enslaved Africans in Galveston,Texas were informed that they were free, nearly two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation had already freed them. This landmark day in American history is now recognized as an official holiday in New York State. 

 

You are invited to celebrate Juneteenth with us by watching our community motorcade as we process from 10 County Center Road down Central Avenue to Four Corners, continuing onto Hartsdale Rd to Old Tarrytown Road to Greenburgh Town Hall, where the procession will conclude. 

 

This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the rich culture and diversity of our community.
