Best wishes from Grenville and myself to Everyone for a safe and glorious July 4th celebration — wherever and however, you will be celebrating. We know that some folks will be travelling to picnics, barbecues, parades and fireworks. We’re travelling too, but much less, under 5 miles, to enjoy several events. (These images are from past years’ events. )
Tonight’s it’s the CommUnity band concert and ice cream social in neighboring Onancock. All that’s needed is a lawn chair and a liking for ice cream with toppings added. Tomorrow, July 4, brings not one, but two more BIG events for these parts (remember, we live in a small area) — the annual Accomac non-motorized 4th of July parade AND the Eastern Shore Public Library’s Firecracker Book Sale, sponsored by the Friends of the Library. (FYI Grenville came up with that slogan a couple of years ago. It’s been in use ever since with a tagline he also created: explode your mind.)
As Friends of the Library members, we’ll be spending a couple of hours at the library today helping to sort books AND getting a first look at sale items. All the books have been donated and there are always great bargains. Funds raised by the Friends support library projects.
We’re stocking up on paperbacks for our upcoming road trip.
More on those plans later.
