Not one single firecracker was set off in Lowell this 4th of July, and no parade, no birthday celebration or Independence Day party of any kind. It was 104 degrees upriver and has been for weeks.

Happy 4th of July to all of you. However you spend it, be safe with fireworks and have fun. A great way to celebrate the 4th is to come to Greencreek for all-day fun. With breakfast, lunch, auction and street sports, you are guaranteed a good time. Fun for the younger set are the kiddie rides. I will make my gooseberry pie again this year.
