[ARCHIVED] Birthday celebration for Yvonne Scarlett-Golden, Feb. 1

YSG Birthday Celebration

As a tribute to former Mayor Yvonne-Scarlett Golden, the city is hosting a birthday celebration at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, in the building that bears her name, the Yvonne Scarlett-Golden Cultural & Educational Center (YSG), located at 1000 Vine St. 

The event is free and open to the public, and will include tributes from her family members, friends and colleagues. There also will be performances by local youth including the drum line from Palm Terrace Elementary School, a birthday cake and refreshments. 

Born in 1926 in Daytona Beach, Scarlett-Golden’s birthday falls on the first day of Black History Month - Feb. 1. 

LeRoy Meadows, a recreation specialist at YSG, organized the event, noting that it would be a wonderful tribute to the former mayor who made history in Daytona Beach. 

“It will be a great opportunity for the public to learn about the city’s roots while having fun,” said Meadows. 

Scarlett-Golden served as the first African-American mayor to be elected and the second woman to be mayor. Before becoming mayor, she served four terms as a city commissioner for Zone 5. 

She was elected mayor in 2003, and passed away while in office in 2006 at the age of 80.

For more information about the event, call YSG at (386) 671-5780.
