Juneteenth Vax & Vote Event

A big thank you to all those who came out to celebrate Juneteenth with us.

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the U.S. June 19, 1865 is the day when all African Americans were freed from slavery. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing. 

Our Juneteenth Vax and Vote Blitz event was a destination for the Akron community on Friday, June 17th, kicking off the holiday weekend.

Thank you to everyone who turned out to make our Juneteenth Vax and Vote Blitz event a success! The community showed their support for our celebration and came to have a great time. Festivities included a spotlight on AUL community programming and education, haircuts, manicures, massages, food, beverage and treat concessions, the Akron Fire Department Fire Truck, the Akron Police Department and K-9 unit, The Ohio Department of Health mobile vaccination unit, voter registration, local vendors, interactive games, raffles, and more.

During the event, we gave away 2 – $50 Visa Gift Cards and 4 – $25 Circle K Gas Cards.

A special shout-out to vendors who helped make this day extra special!
