|The only way to fly in July|
Taking it easy in their mobile shade to laugh and lunch, Grace LaGrange (left) and Savannah Miller joined the festivities in Grant City Park last Thursday. The 4th of July was celebrated in a big way with a full day of fun activities for all ages. The day began early morning with a fun run and ended with a spectacular fireworks show.

Runners of all ages showed up bright and early for the day’s first event—a one mile and 5K fun run/walk. The run was followed by a day’s worth of activities in the Grant City Park sponsored by various local groups.
