OREGON CITY - Clackamas Community College is hosting its third annual Summer Connections, a family-friendly event celebrating Juneteenth, Pride Month and other cultural and community events.

The celebration will be Friday, June 21, 5-7:30 p.m., in the Wacheno Welcome Center on the college’s Oregon City campus. There will be guest speakers, entertainment, children’s activities, booths, food and fun. This includes dancing to CCC bands and a taekwondo exhibition as well as local vendors sharing information about summer activities and community services. Participants will also have opportunities to learn about Juneteenth and Pride Month.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for our greater Clackamas community to celebrate Juneteenth, Pride Month and learn about resources and events occurring throughout the summer,” Csea Leonard, CCC equity and inclusion program manager, said. “I hope all of our attendees feel the joyful energy in the room and the anticipation of the summer's many possibilities. When we come together, we build connections, and that strengthens our community."
