Big doings to celebrate 4th of July

The Lawn­crest 4th of Ju­ly cel­eb­ra­tion will get un­der way with a parade at 9 a.m., fol­lowed by a flag-rais­ing ce­re­mony.

The parade will fea­ture string bands, armed ser­vice groups, an­tique cars, com­munity groups, churches, floats and loc­al sports team mas­cots.

The grand mar­shals will be John J. Riehl (own­er of Rings Phar­macy) and Evelyn Fla­herty (pres­id­ent of Friends of Lawn­crest Lib­rary).

A fire­works cel­eb­ra­tion at dusk will close the fest­iv­it­ies.
