HARVARD – The Harvard 4th of July Committee is going for the gold, unveiling this year’s theme – the Olympic Summer Games.
The committee announced on Facebook “We welcome Holly Hatton, women’s head coach for Bare Hill Rowing, as Parade Grand Marshall. Holly was the rowing coach for the US Olympic Team in 1988 and 1992. She was also chosen as coxswain for the 1980 US Olympic Team but was unable to compete due to US boycott that year.”
Danno Sullivan, who is a speaker, writer, and ukulele player, has signed on as Master of Ceremonies for July 4 field events held aside the Bromfield School following the parade through the downtown.
T-shirts are now on sale at the General Store and at the Transfer Station on Saturdays. T-shirt proceeds help defray the cost of the town event. Also, those wearing the t-shirts are given 50 percent discounted parking at Fruitlands Museum for the town’s official fireworks display, set for dusk on Tuesday, July 3 (rain date July 6).
