CHERRY HILL — The Cherry Hill African American Civic Association probably could not have asked for more with its inaugural Juneteenth event held at the Croft Farms Art Center, with a bustling, diverse crowd, entertainment and fellowship.
The CHAACA organizers said despite it celebrating Juneteenth with a public event for the first time, they had a hint of a large crowd and attendance when they were forced to turn away vendors and entertainers in the days leading up to the event because of its size.
Tina Truitt, president of the CHAACA and Cathy Jenkins, the event organizer, said the success has already given them ideas for how to expand and grow the event next year. Here are some of the photos from the Cherry Hill celebration.
