Fourth of July Celebrations!

Looking for something to do with the family to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday?  This year the City of Brockton will be holding the 12th Annual July 4th Concert & BBQ at the VA Hospital from 2-4 p.m at 940 Belmont Street.  Dale and the Duds will be playing and we will be serving a Fourth of July meal of hot dogs, chips, apple pie and drink free for the vets.  The meal is avaliable to the general public for public $3.  The money raised will be given to the recreation fund to allow the veterans to get away and enjoy other events off campus.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair for the event.  For further information please call Coordinator Susan Curry (508) 631-5624.

  1. Had my computer not been down the past couple days, I could have added about Middleboro’s festivities in time, but for next year: Middleboro has an annual celebration that includes a carnival near the fire and police stations, two different nights of fireworks and a parade in north Middleboro.
