Happy Birthday, USA

Clinton celebrated the Fourth of July with a parade and fireworks. People crowded along College Street and the Village Green to see the marchers who braved the heat. Leading off the Clinton parade were the Scouts sponsored by the Clinton VFW. Grand Marshall Mike Orsino, manager of the Clinton Arena, was instrumental in preparing the rink to host Hockeyville last year. He and his wife, Teresa, delighted kids by throwing candy along the route. Norm Deep, Sr. provided the car and drove. More photos, Page 6
