Push for a Better America’s 4th of July Picnic was a lot of fun under the shade trees across from the Fair Building. Just the right amount of shade and breeze on a warm summer day. Kinda reminded me of, “back in the day.”

We fed 75 people. I assume everyone got all they wanted to eat. Kudos to our chef, Merle Redman. Merle did a great job and we’re thinking about putting him on Full Time.
