Arbor Annie's Father's Day & Juneteenth Weekend Highlights - June 17-20

Arbor Annie’s Father’s Day & Juneteenth Weekend Highlights June 17-20

Spread the love

Sunday is both Father’s Day and Juneteenth. However, since Juneteenth falls on a Sunday, the observed day will be Monday with some offices & businesses closed. For example, the City of Ann Arbor’s offices are closed but trash pickup will still happen. Since some people will be off on Monday, we are extending the weekend roundup through Monday.
