Due to the Fourth of July holiday falling on a Sunday this year, the print plant for our publication gave their employees a vacation day on Monday, July 5.
This forced our publication to be sent to the press on Friday, July 2.
This means that our coverage of the Mountain Grove Alumni Association events as well as the Celebration of Unity in Hartville will not be published until the July 14 issue.
At the time you are reading this editorial, there will be photos put on our Facebook page of the events.
As for the Fourth of July, I want to publicly thank the volunteers who put in the time to decorate the bandstand on the square in Mountain Grove once again this year.
The additional touch of music being played on the sound system really ushered in the Fourth of July holiday in a special way.
The bandstand is simply beautiful as it lights up at night time.
I’ve enjoyed watching so many different people from my window at the office walking over to the bandstand to take photos just as they did during the Christmas season.
It is a special attraction that all of us should be proud of.
