Coming together as a community may be more important than ever this year and an event this Saturday will give folks in Fort Dodge a chance to do that.
This Saturday a celebration will be held in Fort Dodge ahead of the Juneteenth holiday that promotes community unity, black history and a whole lot of fun for people of all ages.
During the event, the accomplishments of two high school graduates will be honored and so will the work of several heroes of the black community.
One of the organizers for the event, Charles Clayton said this event is a great opportunity for people to come together.
Doors open at 11am with a program, food and fellowship starting at 11:30 for a free will donation.
The event will be held Saturday at the MLK Recreation Center, known to many as the AFES location at 712 3rd Street Northwest in Fort Dodge.
