Juneteenth Celebration at Edison Mall
June 19 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Join us for a special tea with “Mina Edison” and “Dr. Ella Mae Piper” at Edison Mall to celebrate Juneteenth. The two icons will talk about life in Fort Myers during the 1920s. Guests will have the opportunity to interact with these historical figures throughout the presentation. Along the talk, artist Marie Dyer will design a painting that the public can purchase through a silent auction. Proceeds will be donated to local non-profit organizations in the Dunbar community, where Ella Mae Piper spent a lot of time organizing charitable projects. Cookies and iced tea will be served at the Edison Ford Shoppe. Sponsored by the Edison Ford Shoppe in partnership with the Edison Mall. For additional information, call 239-931-5351.
