Snow Lake celebration July 3
By JOYCE BROCK
The Snow Lake Shores Planning Committee is working to finalize the final details of this year’s Independence Day Celebration.
The event, which will be held Saturday, July 3, starting at 11 a.m., will combine traditional favorite elements with some new twists.
Refreshments will be available at the Snow Lake Shores Community Center. The community center team will offer a variety of foods for sale, including barbecue plates, barbecue nachos and hot dogs. They will also have drinks available, including sweet tea, soft drinks and bottled water. Among the specialty items available will be barbecue beans prepared by Jason Ross.
The musicians will include bands from several genres. “Stanley Rolfe and the 50+ Band” will perform classic country, rockabilly, ’50s music, rock classics and country gospel. “Little Country” will perform classic country, along with modern country music. “Devil Train” will be the final performer for the evening. The band’s style is described as “a powerhouse mix of bluegrass, folk rock and jam band music” in materials prepared by the planning committee.
The event will also feature a collection of local artists and craftsmen who will be displaying and selling their work. Denise Brown will display fine art pottery. Artwork by Peggy McKnight will be featured in the community center. Benny Conner will offer handcrafted lawn furniture. Lisa Blake will present a collection of purses, and Chuck Plummer will present a collection of knives. Art pieces by Maxine and George Thompson of “GeoMax Works Wood” will be on display. Teresa Dunlap of “Teresa Dunlap Images” will display her photographs at the event as well. One of Dunlap’s photos, of the Benton County Courthouse, is on display at Square Meals in Ashland.
The event will culminate Saturday with the traditional fireworks display at 9 p.m.
