Get ready for July 4 fireworks on the river

We had a good time visiting and table-hopping at the Lanark Village Boat Club last Saturday. Good food, good service and good friends. Who could ask for more? Our good friend Dot Bless picked me up and when we got to the boat club, it was already packed out. Dot was number 50 and I was 51 and they were still piling in.

Don’t forget about lunch on Thursday, July 3, at the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center. Lunch will be served at noon. Hope you can make it. Maybe Ann Wilson will be on hand to check our blood pressure. Be watchin’ for you!

Friday night, of course is hamburger and chips at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. Orders taken after 6 p.m. Your donation of $6 collected at the bar will get you a huge hamburger with chips. Call in take-out at 697-9998. While you are waiting to enjoy your hamburger, you can play some bar bingo, shuffleboard, pool and we also have pull tabs. Have a fun evening.

Then it’s off to the fireworks on the Carrabelle River in beautiful downtown. Things start lighting up at dark thirty.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Members of the Community Church will hold a yard sale, auction and fish fry. Just follow the crowd to the corner of Spring and Oak Street in Lanark Village . Mullet, along with other fish, cole slaw, baked beans, grits, hushpuppy bread and tea will be on the menu. All that good food for a donation of $6.

Donations for the sale are needed. If you can’t bring them to the church, call 697-4195 and someone will be there to pick it up. Silent auction items include two Trane HVAC systems; two ranges, a dining room set, jewelry and more. Try your best to make it over. Proceeds from the sale, auction and fish fry will go towards repairs and restoration of the church and parsonage in Lanark Village .

Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and housebound and remember, don’t drink a fifth on the Fourth.
