Yesterday our friends at Austin Free-Net (AFN) took a break from their regular activities to participate in the Juneteenth Freedom Run/Walk parade that rolled down just outside of their offices at the DeWitty Center on Rosewood.
It was their first time joining in on Juneteenth festivities and we are told that they are SO glad they did! Staff enjoyed themselves all while spreading the word about AFN’s free computer classes and access to Internet. A great opportunity all around!
Shout outs to their Rosewood neighbors ChannelAustin for broadcasting the entire event live and to Saul Paul, a local musician, author, and speaker, who provided FREE hamburgers and hot dogs to all community members including hungry AFN staff!
