It was the 10th year for Salina’s Juneteenth Celebration and this year the organizers opted for a cooler version. Again this year, the event started with a pancake breakfast, with all the sausage and pancake you could eat for just $3. Instead of heading for a day of activities in the park, this year the celebration moved inside for a Juneteenth Program at The City, a local recreational center, that began at 4PM. The keynote speaker for the program was Dr. John Ella Holmes, a 4th Generation Descendent of Nicodemus and the founder of the Nicodemus Educational Camp. The Salina Juneteenth Celebration concluded with a Celebration and homecoming dance.
