Juneteenth Opal Lee Walk

We will meet at the middle school then walk together to the Lynnfield town common. This walk will symbolize the 2.5 mile walk Opal Lee, the grandmother of Juneteenth, would walk in her plight to have Juneteenth become a recognized holiday. At the end of our walk we will have a story walk, refreshments, speakers, and children’s activities.
These events are made possible through our sponsors: Lynnfield Cultural Council, MarketStreet, and Wakefield Co-op Bank.
