A 4th of July celebration was held at the Meatlocker on Monday, July 3. Everyone was treated to pizza and chicken and dumplings. An assortment of desserts from blackberry cobbler to pecan pie was enjoyed. It was a fun time, but most importantly, it was a time to honor those that gave us the independence we enjoy today.

On Thursday, the BoTyme Jam celebrated its fifth year. Everyone enjoyed food and a cake to honor Bo Messick and his five years giving musicians a place to perform and others a place to listen and dance.
