President’s Message 2017

Welcome to the 33rd annual Juneteenth my name SSG David Thomas Whitney Sr. I am the son of Walter and Opal Whitney baby of eleven. First of all I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity again for being the Juneteenth President, and I would also like to take this opportunity to thank West Wind Campus of Care at the PARC for allowing me to take time off of work. I have a great staff and I have enjoyed working with and for Vice President Albert Neal. I am trying to educate the young African Americans what Juneteenth is all about what our slaves went through so when we come together today for this celebration I would like you to think about what struggles they have overcome. The Juneteenth staff has brought and to showcase the Veterans of Pueblo, Colorado and some special guest throughout Colorado from Medal of Honors to Tuskegee Airmen, Buffalo Soldiers, Veterans and youngest African American Veteran in WWII. I would like to welcome all of you to take some time to educate our young African Americans and to share some of your wonderful stories. The Juneteenth Committees hope to have a wonderful day we worked very hard this past year to have a better Juneteenth than the years before. We have a great team and we are always looking for new members, new ideas and people that are willing to work to make our 34th year even better on behalf of the Juneteenth Organization enjoy yourself, enjoy some good Juneteenth cooked food listen to some good music watch the kids play some games above all else enjoy our 33rd annual Juneteenth and always have a safe Juneteenth. SSG David Thomas Whitney Sr. President
