Independence Day Celebration


A Big Thank You

to Jerry Koelsch for letting the Chamber hold its 2nd annual Independence Day Celebration at the LG Sale Barn/Flea Market in 2018, and to Wayne Haydock for checking to make sure we had everything we needed.

Thank you to everyone who came out, everyone who bought Liberty raffle tickets and donated items and set up. Thank you so much to the guys that spent their night and morning cooking ribs, Stacy Haney (1st place), Terry Woolman (3rd place) and Bo Collette (2nd place). Thank you Charles Cole, Carl Close and Chuck Coverdell for judging.  A very special thank you to Hunter Adams, Stephanie Walker and Wyatt Walker for participating in the Liberty contest.  Thanks to Justin Scuggins for singing the anthem and Stephen Bell for leading the pledge. Thanks to the Outlaw Cruisers for bringing out their cool cars for everyone to look at and to Ed Biggs and Tristan Cook for entertaining us with great music. Thanks to Claudia Biendl for some great face-painting.
