Livin’ in the U.S.A.

Some 26 youths and more than a dozen adults made the trek through Ash Grove’s Serenity Valley the morning of July 4 for the subdivision’s annual Independence Day parade. This year’s event included vehicles from the Ash Grove Police Department, Ash Grove Fire Department and emergency personnel were also on hand to socialize with the children. New this year, was music playing as a backdrop for the celebration. Bottom, Ty Thornton does everything she can to make the newspaper while husband Oran Thornton laughs at her antics.
