Juneteenth successful despite the heat


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Even with the amazing heat on Saturday, Jan. 17, Juneteenth proceeded!

The Black Heritage Committee has several people to thank for helping us bring that important historical day to Roswell.
Foremost of all, we thank Father God for helping us with inspiration and health to see us through. We are truly grateful for food donations, gifts of money and other donations from the Roswell community. I appreciate those individuals who also contributed their time, talent and resources. This includes Natasha N. Mackey, who thrilled attendees with her songs and inspired with her words on freedom.
We appreciate those who wanted to attend, but could not due to the heat. We thank those who attended, but could not stay because of the heat. We commend those who endured the heat and persisted in the day. The committee couldn’t have done it without you.
May you all be blessed by Father God through Yeshua the Christ. A breakdown of donors includes: Tobosa Developmental Services (co-sponsorship); Daniel Lopez Insurance Co. (resource); Mt. Gilead Baptist Church (water); Ware Tabernacle Baptist Church (food donations); McKanix Sheetmetal Contractor (donation); Natasha N. Mackey (songs of inspiration, speaker); Wal-Mart Supercenter (donation); Albertsons (donation); Demarees Pumping Service (extra porta pottie); Roswell Daily Record (newspaper coverage); Roswell Parks and Recreation (park, play equipment).
