UPCOMING EVENTS: Here are a Few Things to do in Missouri City, Texas to Celebrate the 2015 Juneteenth Holiday



Monday, June 15, 2015
MISSOURI CITY, TEXAS

At 7 a.m., on Monday, June 15, the City of Missouri City will partner with the Missouri City Juneteenth Celebration Foundation (MCJCF) to kick off its 2015 celebration with the scholarship golf tournament at Quail Valley Golf Course, 2880 La Quinta Dr. This year’s six-day celebration will run from June 15 – 20 and will include three new special events.

The MCJCF was launched by District B Missouri City Councilmember Don Smith in the fall of 2002 and was comprised of residents, businesses and civic leaders in Missouri City. The vision of the Foundation is to promote the well-being of residents who reside within Fort Bend County, particularly, citizens of Missouri City. The celebration was created to bring an event of purpose to the community. This organization recognizes area community leaders and provides financial support for deserving students through scholarships.

“The Foundation’s mission statement is to bring positive attention to African-Americans, while celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation,” said Councilmember Smith, who also serves as the MCJCF Board Chairman. “We welcome residents, businesses and friends across the region to join us in recognizing and honoring the wisdom and wealth of our families.”
