'Families Joining Hands'

ROUND ROCK, Texas — More than 1,000 neighbors of the Round Rock Texas Stake attended an inter-faith festival of families June 15.

Sponsored by the stake, the St. Philips United Methodist Church, Community fellowship Church, Sweet-Home Baptist Church, Imani Community Church and the Round Rock Volunteer Center, the event featured indoor displays and workshops on family issues, outdoor games and entertainment. The event, "Families Joining Hands," was held at the stake center and the neighboring St. Philips United Methodist Church.

The festival was conceived by the stake and regional public affairs directors as a celebration of "Juneteenth," the holiday on which Texans celebrate the emancipation of slaves in their state.
