An Independence Day celebration

POMEROY–An Independence Day celebration is planned at the City Park on July 4 at 2-4 p.m.

An Independence Day event has grown out of community wide effort. There will be music, readings of the declaration of independence and the midnight ride of Paul Revere; games for kids, pictures with Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty, and hot dogs, watermelon, and ice cream bars. And best of all, anyone may participate in the apple pie contest! Here are the rules. Best Apple Pie Contest: Entries accepted on July 4 at 2 p.m .; use only apples in pie- other pies will NOT be judged; bake the pie in disposable pan; a panel of judges will select best apple pie; the winner will receive an embroidered apron; and following the judging and awards presented, all pies will then be served to the public.

The event is funded by donations from the community, as well as SEWEDA and the Pomeroy Chamber of Commerce.

Bring your own picnic blanket, lawn chairs, or cornhole.
