AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The Potter County Commissioners’ Court is following in the federal government’s footsteps and adding a new holiday to the calendar.
They have officially added Juneteenth as a county holiday.
This is the second holiday in two years that has been added to the amendment.
“So this year we get off on Juneteenth and I think it’s very important to recognize that as a holiday federal government did it so we’re following suit.
Tanner also said she hopes everyone will go out and enjoy the new holiday and participate.
