Hey team, summer is almost here and we are excited for it. Join Jen Marin on Up To Speed as we talk about:

– Network upgrades in popular summer destinations like the Jersey Shore, Hilton Head, and Myrtle Beach to keep you connected even at the beach.
– Celebrating Juneteenth, a day that marks the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in Texas in 1865, and learn about the BOLD Employee Resource Group’s activities to honor this day.
– Get ready for the Summer Scavenger Hunt where you can win cool prizes by watching Up To Speed and answering questions.

Summer is the perfect time to head to the beach, and if you are planning a trip to Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, or the Jersey Shore, you’ll be happy to know that Verizon has announced network upgrades in these areas. This means you can stay connected, work remotely, listen to music, and enjoy social media while soaking up the sun. These upgrades also support public safety and local businesses, making your beach days even better.

Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19, is an important day in American history. It marks the day when enslaved African Americans in Texas were finally informed of their freedom, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. Juneteenth became a federal holiday in 2021, recognizing the significance of this day in the fight against slavery. The BOLD Employee Resource Group is hosting events throughout the month to honor Juneteenth, including a marquee event on June 20 focused on financial freedom.

As summer approaches, get ready for some fun with the Up To Speed Summer Scavenger Hunt. Watch the show, answer questions, and win amazing prizes like an eco-friendly Nimble battery pack to keep you charged up for all your summer adventures. Stay tuned for more questions and chances to win in the coming weeks.

Summer is all about fun in the sun, so make sure you’re connected, informed, and ready to celebrate important moments in history like Juneteenth. Join us in honoring these traditions and making the most of the summer season ahead.
