CCC Celebrates Juneteenth, Pride with Annual Summer Connections Event

Clackamas Community College is hosting its second annual Summer Connections, a family-friendly event celebrating Juneteenth, LGBTQ Pride Month and other cultural and community events.

The celebration will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 9, on the college’s Oregon City campus. College officials promise there will be guest speakers, entertainment, children’s activities, booths, food and fun.

This includes salsa dance and Jazzercise demonstrations, a DJ spinning tunes, bingo, cornhole, a photo booth and local vendors sharing information about summer activities and community services.

Participants will also have opportunities to tour the college, explore services and on-campus organizations and learn about Juneteenth and Pride Month.

“Connection is the key to allowing equity, inclusion and belonging to grow,” CCC Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer Casey Layton said. “Come take part in strengthening our community.”

Summer Connections is sponsored by the Clackamas Community College Foundation, the city of Milwaukie, the Clackamas County Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Office, and the Oregon Health Authority’s Healthier Together Oregon.

Summer Connections is a free event and is open to the public. Clackamas Community College is located at 19600 Molalla Avenue in Oregon City. For more information, visit
