2019 Community Juneteenth Cookout

The second annual Juneteenth Kick-off Barbecue, held June 14, 2019, was a grand success. This is in thanks to the Bill Long Foundation, the African American Fund of the Community Foundation, the City of Oberlin, and many community partners and volunteers. This year, we served well over 330 people (we lost count after that), with so many coming back for seconds that we ran out of the 450 plates. Four veteran grillers shared their time and expertise, for a very small stipend, to cook delicious ribs, chicken and hotdogs; Mrs. Joyce Randleman once again prepared her signature green beans, macaroni and cheese, pasta salad and pound cake. The evening included music, a free raffle, face-painting and games for children, and, fortunately, perfect weather! Said one attendee: “I just wanted to say…Thank You. I brought friends from out of town, and they had a great time. The event was beautiful! The food was great, and I loved the way you brought everyone together. Especially in these times…” - it was a wonderful evening!
