Roachdale wants to be 'part of your Independence Day'
As part of Roachdale's Independence Day celebrations, the town is invited the public to join in the festivities on Saturday, July 2.
Beginning at 1 p.m. will be a parade set to start and finish at Roachdale Elementary School.
At 2 p.m. the town will present a free concert by globally-acclaimed pianist Bob Milne.
Coming out of retirement, John T. Wilson will also be present to direct the community choir in singing "Battle Hymn of the Republic," a song written by American writer Julian Ward Howe in November 1861, to follow Milne's concert.
Desserts and snacks will be served just steps away from the Roachdale Community Park.
"We are very happy to invite the community and county to visit Roachdale as we celebrate Indian's bicentennial," Roachdale Revitalization Cooperative Alliance President Joe Buser said.
