America's 4th of July City

Our Seward Kiwanis Kitones sang at the Civic Center at noon today as one of many concurrent activities going on in this 4th of July City. I believe this is the largest crowd we have ever had in Seward for this celebration.Our Kitone concert concluded with the Battle Hymn of the Republic with a standing ovation. Paul Beck is our leader with Wes Skilton accompanist. There were 17 of us Kitones, Phil said, "We are not all here". Usually our number is 22. I walked home with stops at the antique tractors, City Band concert, the pole vaulting contest and a concert at the Old Glory Theatre. We had a crowd of people in our yard and driveway for the Grand Parade which went past our house. It lasted from 4:00 to 5:30 which was longer than usual. It was a beautiful day and we topped it off with a group of the family that had been here for the Parade,  going to Bee for a Lou Dart Fish Dinner.
