Marshall County Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Sawtelle invites those interested to the Celebrate America July 4 event sponsored by the Marshall County Democrats.
"All Americans have a reason to celebrate the liberties we have in this country. Local Democrats will be celebrating the freedoms that provide working men and women the opportunities to enjoy their families and make their lives better. Democrats work to improve the opportunities for everyone no matter what their economic background," Sawtelle said.
The annual Fourth of July Picnic will be held at Riverview Park, in Marshalltown, at The Community Building, 402 Woodland St.
Bert Permar, finance chairman, said, "The event will be held from 5:00-7:00 p.m. so that attendees can have a traditional July 4 picnic and then travel to their favorite community fireworks display by 7:30 p.m. Cost of the event is $10 for adults and $20 per family."
Sue Blaisdell, second vice chairperson, said, "We really encourage families to join us so that children see how adults join together to exercise their role as citizens in a democracy."
