The 2nd Annual YNTO Juneteenth Celebration was a success. Thanks to all who helped make the event happen and to all those who attended. The community came together, shared excellent food by Mr. Maurice King, Mrs. Carolyn Jones and others, was inspired by the speakers, Bishop Ron King, Ms. Lakesha Jones reading a speech by Ms. Zyaja Mattocks and Prophetess Ruby Floyd, enjoyed the YNTO Step Dancers, the Dazzling Dancers, Dancer Mrs. Pamela Ward and music by DJ Demetriious Davis, played a fun game of kickball with Sheriff Chris Davis and the Pamlico County Deputies and enjoyed being at Alliance Recreation Park on a sunny afternoon.
We hope you enjoy the pictures in our Gallery and the video below.
