County Offices to Observe Juneteenth on July 2, 2021
The Wood County Commissioners, Doris Herringshaw, Craig LaHote, and Ted Bowlus, on Thursday, agreed that most Wood County government offices
will be closed on Friday, July 2, 2021, in observance of the Juneteenth Holiday. While the actual holiday was Saturday, June 19, and would have been
observed by the County offices on June 18, the manner in which it was declared by the President and the Governor unfortunately left no time for preparation.
Wood County government will observe Juneteenth on June 19, annually beginning in 2022 and each year thereafter.
