On Saturday, June 20, the Mitchelville Preservation Project will hold a 150th anniversary Juneteenth Celebration at Fish Haul Park on Beach City Road.

Also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, Juneteenth commemorates the issuance and first reading of General Order Number 3 by Union Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger on June 19, 1865. The holiday celebrates African-Americans’ freedom and achievements and encourages respect for all cultures. Juneteenth, a combination of June and 19th, serves as a historical milestone to remind Americans of the triumph of the human spirit over the cruelty of slavery.

The idea of the Players Amateur came back in 1999 when Bluffton golfers Tom McKnight and Duke Delcher were traveling to the U.S. Amateur Championship in Pebble Beach, Calif.

“It was a long flight and we had plenty of time on our hands,” Delcher said. “That’s where the idea came from. We felt it would be a good way to give back to the game that has been so good to us.”

The Broadway smash hit, Xanadu, is this summer’s Arts Center phenom, on stage from June 17-July 26. The musical follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 in a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first roller disco! When she accidentally falls in love with him, much to her jealous sister-muses’ dismay, chaos and fun abound, skate wheels turn and disco balls twirl.

Packed with upbeat songs by Electric Light Orchestra and John Farrar (composer of most of Olivia Newton John’s hits) including “Magic,” “All Over the World,” “Suddenly,” “I’m Alive,” “Evil Woman,” “Strange Magic,” “Have You Never Been Mellow,” and “Xanadu,” to name a few. The hilarious, roller-skating, musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolls along to this legendary hit score.
