The heat didn’t keep neighbors from coming out to the Exchange Club’s annual July 4th parade, which just celebrated its 25th year. “We had a huge crowd this year,” said David Brown, an active member of the Exchange Club. “It may have been that the 4th fell mid-week so people were in town, but I think also the new banners (purchased by the LH Junior Women’s League) helped get the word out.”

Check out some photos and history from past parades, and continue celebrating Independence Day throughout the week.
