June is marching along. There are booklets around town for the Fourth of July celebration. The cover features Steve Eadler.
Steve was on the Village Council for 10 years and served as mayor for another 13 years. He served on the Fourth of July Committee for 12 years.
This is a big day in the village with an abundance of food and summer games. Of course the highlight is the fireworks display and it is widely acknowledged as a ‘great’ show. However, this show is costly and needs financial support.
The committee reports this year’s display will cost $10,400. Volunteer fire departments man the operation. Support the cause and keep the celebration of our Independence Day here in our own community.
Plan an early day with breakfast at the Masonic Hall. Pancakes and sausage are the traditional treat. This is an annual event at Fort Black Lodge No. 413 and you will not leave hungry. It is all you can eat for a $7 donation. Serving begins at 7 a.m.
Tri-Village cheerleaders will be assisting with the serving. In turn proceeds will support the cheerleaders with uniforms and equipment and other expenses. The Masonic Lodge also assists other charities.
