Suddeth children Hailey, 11; McKenzie, 9; Michelle, 10; and Lucas, 3½, decorate their wagon, with assistance from Jamie Hall, for Landrum Library’s annual Patriotic Parade Thursday, June 28. The annual parade invites families to decorate wagons, tricycles and strollers with red, white and blue décor before they trail in parade fashion from the library to Brookwood Park. The parade is the first of numerous events celebrating the Fourth of July holiday. The Columbus Fire Department’s BBQ and Gospel Sing will be held Saturday, June 30 – Tuesday, July 3 at Veterans Park in Columbus. Then on Wednesday, Columbus will celebrate with the 50th Fab Fourth in the downtown area, culminating in a display of fireworks that night. See page 3 for another photo. (photo by Samantha Hurst)
