Lots of activities planned for the Fourth of July

There will be lots of activities and events taking place Thursday to celebrate the Fourth of July.

The day begins with the 7th annual Pro-Troop Rally, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the lawn of the Cumberland County Courthouse.

This annual celebration includes a number of interesting and informative speakers as well as entertainment from Jay Fox, D.J. Garrison, “T” Shurmur, Terri Utsey and others.

The program will include a flag raising and flag folding ceremony, as well as recognition of all military branches.

At 9:30 a.m., children will line up at the Palace Theatre for the 11th annual Fourth of July Children’s Parade. Children of all ages are invited to join the fun and help celebrate the 237th birthday of the United States of America.

The parade, sponsored by the Crab-Orchard Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, begins promptly at 10 a.m. and features children of all ages decked out in their patriotic dress parading down Main St. to the Crossville Depot. Children are encouraged to decorate their bikes, trikes and wagons, or to take on the persona of George Washington, Uncle Sam, Betsy Ross or some other character from America’s past.

For those children too young to make the walk, parents or grandparents are welcome to pull their youngster in a wagon or push them in a stroller. Children’s battery-powered vehicles will be allowed; however, no gasoline-powered vehicles will be permitted.

For more information, call Lynn Speich at (865) 354-0809 or Charlotte Reynolds, at 484-2630.

The Pro-Troop Rally continues following the children’s parade, with a parade of veterans planned to follow the children for a portion of the parade route, so be sure to stay on Main St. as the festivities continue.

Local merchants will provide food, soft drinks and water free of charge.

Donations received will be for the a special veterans fund. Limited seating will be available, but those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs. For more information please contact Debbie at 248-1562.

  • 8-6 Watercolor class.jpg Paint watercolor hydrangeas with artist Le Voss

    Hydrangeas fascinate both gardeners and artists because unlike most other plants, the color of hydrangea flowers can change dramatically. Painting hydrangeas is a satisfying way to enhance and preserve their colorful beauty.

  • spiders.jpg Enjoying Nature: Who doesn't love spiders?

    Who doesn't love spiders? Probably just about everyone hates spiders, yet many more people in the U.S. die from pet dog or pet cat bites than spider bites. Most information that I can find states that probably only one or two people per year die from spider bites in the U.S. Of more than 3,500 species of spiders in the U.S., only the black widow and the brown recluse are a threat to humans.
