Juneteenth Celebration To Take Place In Bartonsville

This weekend, in recognition of Juneteenth, Bairo Real Estate invites you to come and enjoy their community celebration of freedom.

On Saturday, June 18, Bairo Real Estate will be hosting its first-ever Juneteenth, family and friends’ celebration of freedom. The celebration will begin at 12:30 PM and run until 3:30 PM at their office on 611. Admission is free and attendees can expect music, food, raffles, face painting, networking, fun, and more. About 20 vendors will be in attendance with event proceeds going towards the Village of Hope orphanage in Ghana and towards helping a local marginalized individual get their real estate license. Food options will range from soul food to Spanish food and others in between, a mix of cultures.

According to juneteenth.com, “Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas, with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official on January 1, 1863.

Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas, a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics, and family gatherings. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing. It is a time for assessment, self-improvement, and for planning the future.”

Tiffanie Bailey, owner and founder of Bairo Real Estate, is excited to bring this celebration to the community. “We are the biggest black-owned real estate company in the area. Just like the 4th of July, Juneteenth is something for us to celebrate,” said Bailey. We all come from different backgrounds, and I feel like by understanding each other’s plight, we are better able to understand each other. Value can be found in someone else’s journey.”
