The Town of Carlisle will celebrate Juneteenth Saturday, June 20, with a Facebook Live event on the Hope Station Facebook page at 1 p.m. The online event includes a virtual book reading featuring a librarian from Bosler Memorial Library, essay readings from students and a scholarship presentation to Taytum Robinson-Covert ’24.

The celebration of Juneteenth, which recognizes the end of slavery in the U.S., also includes a volunteer effort led by Hope Station, a local educational and community-building nonprofit. The effort invites volunteers to meet at Lincoln Cemetery at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 19, to hang up name tags for those buried there.

Dickinson’s women's soccer team is also marking Juneteenth with a Jump for Justice fundraiser. Throughout the day, the team is inviting participants to join them in high intensity interval training to raise funds for the Greater Harrisburg Area NAACP and other local organizations who are fighting to end racial injustices.
