Juneteenth Day in Racine... Caron steals the show
It was Juneteenth Day in Racine on Saturday, celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation that freed the slaves in 1863. But it was not Abraham Lincoln who got all the attention here, not when Caron Butler was present at the Bryant Center.
There was lots going on -- gospel singers, great food, games for the kids, booths set up by various organizations. But once Caron appeared, the Washington Wizards star from Racine stole the show.
Here are some pictures from the event, starting with one of Caron, who spoke about his 3D's that got him where he is, a star in the NBA: Discipline, Determination and Dedication.
And HERE's the Journal Times' coverage of Caron Butler's Friday activities.
