Independence Day Celebration 2017
Last Minute Details:
Just a reminder that the meal being served at the BBQ on Saturday is a GOOD OLD-FASHIONED PIG ROAST, with baked beans, coleslaw, breads/rolls, pickles, assorted beverages, and choice of dessert: “patriotic shortcake” which is strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream over diced pound cake or slices of watermelon. Adults $8.00, kids 4-10 $5.00 and those under 4 eat whatever they eat for free. OR BRING YOUR OWN PICNIC, if the BBQ meal doesn’t appeal. The whole point of the day is to gather together in fun, enjoy good food, however you choose to have it, and the observance of the holiday.
There will be assorted T-SHIRTS FOR SALE (Thank you Jill Simpson!) The shirts sell for $20 each. Any income realized from the meal sales and the shirts goes toward the 2018 festival.
Thanks in advance to all of the VOLUNTEERS! A lot has gone into planning this event, and there will be lots to do all through Saturday and into Sunday morning. If you’d like to pitch in … ask Patty Jenks, Sarah Crocket, or any organizer how you can help. (You will be able to tell who’s running around making all this happen!)
And finally, THE SHOW WILL GO ON, whatever the weather. The large tent has sides we’ll drop if we need to. The show goes on, so to speak. The dance will be relocated to the Congregational Church if the weather prohibits safe dancing on the Common. (Thank you, Lyme Congregational Church!)
