This is the time of the year that Lynden people who have experienced summers in the East and Middle West are mighty glad they’re in cool Whatcom County. Mrs. I. R.

Following the celebration Saturday, a splendid dance has been arranged by the Volunteer Firemen at Hawley’s Hall. Heun’s 5-piece orchestra will play. A similar dance will be held Friday night.

The Lynden Post Office will be closed Saturday from 10 o’clock on, in order to give the force an opportunity to take part in the celebration. The carriers on the rural routes will not go out Saturday.

Did we at the time of our birth as a nation secure all the liberties we shall ever need? At the Methodist Church Sunday evening the talk topic will be “Some Liberties Not Secured July 4, 1776, and as Yet Not Attained.” Some of the economic and social problems of our country will be considered.

A record crowd attended the tenth anniversary sale Saturday of the Farmers Mercantile Company. This is the fifth sale that the company has held in its history.
