CHICO, Calif. - The Celebration Gospel Choir is presenting a free concert on June 15 in celebration of Juneteenth.

"Juneteenth is known as the African-American Independence Day," explains Reverend Robert Morton. "Two and a half years after the signing of the emancipation proclamation, slaves in Texas found out they were free."

The choir of Morton's church, Bethel AME, proposed, that while celebrating Juneteenth, they also wanted to do work for the community and their church.

Funds from a gospel singing workshop put on by the choir will help fund restorations of the church.

A $50 donation will provide you with a lecture by an assistant professor of Chico State, another lecture by Reverend Robert Morton himself, as well as the opportunity to be a part of the choir concert.

Temperatures are staying cool, but gusty north winds will drive high fire danger across northern California on Tuesday. Breezy north winds, warmer temperatures, and dry conditions are ahead for your Wednesday. We'll stay dry and get even warmer from late this week through this weekend.
