July 1st is fast approaching; again we are planning a fantastic day of events. Starting with a pancake breakfast and ending with fireworks and lots of fun in between. There will be a parade at 4 p.m. Special attention will be given to our youth to participate, with the theme being modes of transportation, “Planes, Trains, Automobiles.” This would be a good time to show your imagination and talent. How about decorating your bike to look like one the modes? There will be prizes.

Drive safe and respect the fire ban.
