Believe it or not, Harvard's 4th of July planning is underway. Fruitlands has once again graciously donated their spectacular grounds for the fireworks extravaganza on the evening of Wednesday, July 3. The parade and field events will take place on the Fourth of July.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS: If you like planning and fraternizing with fun, creative people, come join us at our monthly meetings. Our next meeting will be held on Sunday, March 3 at 4 p.m. If you want to help on a smaller scale, we need volunteers to sell t-shirts and to facilitate the field events. The 4th of July fireworks, parade, and field events are brought to you by the hard work of your fellow friends and neighbors. Please consider joining us by sending us an email at

ATTENTION ALL FLOAT MAKERS: Our theme this year is "Old Fashioned 4th of July". Consider this your official invitation to compete for the honor of first prize in float decorating.
