Lane Street Project: Juneteenth thank yous!

And it’s a wrap! Juneteenth weekend was extra-special for Lane Street Project. For the first time, we had a booth at Wilson’s Juneteenth Festival, and our first summertime clean-up, co-sponsored by Scarborough House Resort, was a resounding success!

Special thanks to David Speight of Mount Hebron Lodge #42; festival vendor chairperson Sheryletta Lacewell; Lane Street Project volunteers Castonoble Hooks, Briggs Sherwood, Billy and Christina Foster, Brittany Hamm, and Lisa Benoy Gamble; and Jen Kehrer and the good folks of Scarborough House. Thanks also to everyone who stopped by our booth Saturday to learn more about our work at Odd Fellows and Vick Cemeteries and all who showed up in today’s steamy heat to take back a little bit of sacred ground.
