JLGL Celebrates Black History

Sat, 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM Gow Fields Park & Ride


Come join us in celebrating Black History Month by honoring the past and inspiring the future. We will be accompanied on the bus route by a speaker provided by The Luster African American Heritage Museum to highlight the honorable historical figure, Rosa Parks. As we reflect on the life and accomplishments of Rosa Parks, we will be viewing Lakeland communities we aim to serve.

After the Rosa Parks bus tribute, we will drive to Mary’s Bagel Café for a soulful brunch & trivia.

This event is open to the Junior League Members and Community Members. We ask participants and partners wear their desired organizational shirts along with African print or the colors red, yellow, green, and black.

Participation at both the bus tribute and Mary’s Bagel café is NOT required. Please arrive at the Gow Fields Park and Ride at 10 AM for the Welcome Ceremony prior to the bus tribute and/or 11:30 AM at Mary’s Bagel Café for lunch and trivia.
