The Odessa Record -

Community picnic in the park on July 4 holiday


The Fourth of July holiday is next Wednesday, giving everyone a mid-week break. Businesses will be closed and many local folks will have their own fireworks to shoot off once darkness falls.

The Odessa Volunteer Fire Department will once again provide a picnic lunch for the community at Reiman Park, beginning at 11 a.m. and running until approximately 2 p.m. This year the firefighters will provide pulled-pork sandwiches, potato salad, baked beans, watermelon, chips and beverages for $8 for an individual or $15 for a couple. Children aged four and under can eat free. All of the dishes are prepared by the firefighters and their families, so come on down for some great grub (see ad, page 6).

The weather is expected to be very nice, with high temperatures predicted to be in the mid-70s on the Fourth.

The Odessa Record will publish a day late next week because of the holiday being celebrated on our normal printing day. We hope to see you at the firefighters’ picnic in the park.
