[Racine] – The Racine County Republican Party is proud to announce that we will once again participate in Racine’s Annual Juneteenth Celebration at the Dr. John Bryant Community Center, 601 21st St from noon until 5pm on Saturday, June 13th.

The annual celebration dates back to 1865 when the abolition of slavery was announced in the state of Texas.
