Although we don’t know who counted, someone reported on email that 160 million hotdogs were consumed over the Fourth of July. These are the days for camping, going to the lakes and fishing.

GRAND FORKS — The Fourth of July has come and gone. The dogs are happy the loud banging noises are over for another year.

The days we dream of in January are here. July stretches out with the welcome of long awaited summer days.

Although we don’t know who counted, someone reported on email that 160 million hotdogs were consumed over the Fourth of July. These are the days for camping, going to the lakes and fishing.

Among the joys of summer are concerts by the Grand Forks City Band. And the next one is coming up at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 14, at the Myra Gazebo on the grounds of the Myra Museum. And a fourth concert is set for July 28. The band was scheduled to play at the Ulland Sports Complex at South Middle School during the Fourth of July festivities.

The band with 67 members this year and Janelle Huber, director, welcomes more members at gfcity.band@gmail.com

There was a large group of listeners for last week’s concert. Most of them bring their own lawn chairs. Richard Ray, president of the board of directors for the Myra Museum complex, offered a welcome. And he recognized Bonnie Cameron, a retired Grand Forks reading teacher. He thanked her for her work with the school and announced that a plaque in her honor will be posted in the school.
