THE ANNUAL 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATION AT PATRIOT'S PARK

 

It’s a Bond County and Greenville tradition that continues again this year, it's the 4th of July celebration at Patriot's Park.  This year's event will include food, music and of course the fireworks.  The shriners will be out cooking, along with old school smokers, and kettle corn.  The glow necklaces will be sold, and the Greenville Jaycees will be running a dunking booth and selling snow cones.  The Greenville Muny Band will perform at 6:00 PM and music will be playing throughout the day.  The park grounds open at 3:00 PM and the event will end with the fireworks performance after dusk.  Donations will be taken to help pay for the fireworks.  Visitors need to keep in mind the construction work that has restricted traffic to one lane, on a bridge on Rt. 127 near Patriots' Park.  Since the work is on a state route, local police are not allowed to control traffic, so you are advised to allow a little more time for travel, or arrive earlier than normal, or take an alternate route to reach Patriot's Park.

POOL TO RE-OPEN TODAY

 

The Kingsbury Park District Pool is about ready to re-open.  According to the KPD, the pool will re-open at noon today .  The pool has been closed all week, due to a pipe that burst Sunday night during matenience.  No one was hurt when the large pipe broke, but it forced the pool to close.  KPD Director Jerry Sauerwine said later this week that the piece that broke was under warranty and a replacement will be sent to the KPD without charge. With repairs being done by KPD staff, the cost to the district will be minimal.
