HUGE kudos to the folks on the 4th of July Committee for getting this up and running again. It was a sad day when it ended a couple years ago. Virtual standing ovation to those who brought the celebration of this incredible nation's independence back to North Reading.

If you have a student who needs community service hours, this is a great way to fulfill that requirement and have fun doing it! If interested, visit the website www.nrbringbackthe4th.org to learn more.
