On June 15th the Peyton Colony Heritage Foundation held their annual Juneteenth Celebration, featuring BBQ and all the fixin’s, a home-baked cake auction (along with other items), and homemade ice cream & kettle corn. Many people came out for the event, and we sang and listened to the lively music by “The Unshakables,” who played all afternoon for us.
Gary Lynn Jones did all the BBQ this year, and everyone complimented his talent as BBQer. Everyone brought a dish to go along with the basics that we furnished, and I heard someone brought greens and squash, too!
It was amazing to see those cakes going for such big money! They were auctioned off by Handy Man Al! I didn’t know he was an auctioneer! He did an awesome job! We greatly appreciate everyone who bought the cakes, and all who donated to the maintenance and repair of the Peyton Colony Elementary School, and look forward to next year. We hope you can make it. The date of Juneteenth is the 19th of June, so if it falls during the week we always hold it on the Saturday before June 19th. Watch for the notice in the newspaper. May God bless us one and all.
