Marilyn Hagerty: Look quick, take notes

This is the last day of this year to experience what is so rare as a day of June.

This is the day to reread the words of the poet James Russell Lowell:

"No price is set on the lavish summer; June may be had by the poorest comer."

The Fourth of July looms brightly as time marches on. Thanks to the Sertoma Club, there will be a celebration in Grand Forks. There's still time to rig up an entry for the children's parade. The lineup is at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday near the Chamber of Commerce. The parade starts at 11:30 a.m. and moves down North Third Street to the Town Square.

There the flag will be raised and the City Band will be playing. So will Kenny and The Classics. And 1,000 flags will be handed out.

Joining the festivities will be the ever smiling Mayor Mike Brown. With sponsorship of the Sertoma Club, the festivities continue all day. There will be fireworks at 10 p.m.

Paul Waind of Sertoma says the celebration goes on with the help of merchants. The Fourth of July celebrations began with duck races on the Red River. That was way back when - in 1992.

June is bowing out and July is moving in with a free concert at 7 p.m. tonight by the Red River Summer Orchestra in a pops concert. That's at the Myra Pavilion. On Saturday at 4 p.m., another free concert by the New York Kammermusiker double reed ensemble.

Ask Marilyn

Q. What's so great about Saturday?

A. It's Canada Day.

Q. What's going on at the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings?

A. Quite a bit. There is honey, early offerings from the gardens. There is jewelry, stationery, fine sewing. The South Forks Lions are there proclaiming their burgers are best. And Charlotte Landsem is amazing with her fresh, homemade lefse from Edmore.
