Farmers Bank celebrated Juneteenth on June 19 by investing in the community with donations to the Community Disciples and Dotson Park. June 19, 1865, was the day when Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas, with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.
