Young Government Leaders – Atlanta invites all government employees, contractors, and friends to join us for lunch and trivia to celebrate Juneteenth.
Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. It is also often observed for celebrating African-American culture. Originating in Galveston, Texas, it has been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States since 1865.
While Juneteenth is officially on June 19th, the observed Federal, state, and local holiday is Monday, June 20th this year.
Meet us at the historic Paschal’s, a Black-owned Atlanta icon complete with a rich history from six decades featuring signature soul food dishes and brush up on your Juneteenth history and knowledge before the lunch so you can play our trivia game.
Please note that while RSVP’s are free, lunch will be purchased individually by attendees. Please review the menu before attending and bring enough cash to cover your lunch, taxes, and tip, as the venue is unable to split checks.
We look forward to seeing you there!
