     BRONSON --
For the hundreds of people who might have thought the Fourth of July would include fireworks in Bronson of July 4, now is the time to rewrite that calendar entry.

     As of the Town Council meeting on Monday night (June 19), there is a new plan. Despite decades of celebrating Independence Day on the Fourth of July, the Town of Bronson Annual Independence Day Celebration is now scheduled for Saturday, July 1, starting at 5 p.m.
     Town Councilwoman Katie Parks made the motion to change the date for the celebration in Bronson, and her motion was met with a unanimous vote of approval.
     Therefore, starting at 5 p.m. on July 1 is when vendors are slated to be on hand to start selling delicious treats, while everyone waits for the sky to darken.
     People who have been to the past few Fourth of July fireworks shows in Bronson might remember that it starts at dark. Another thing to remember is that parking is a challenge due to the high volume of vehicles.
     The members of Bronson Fire and Rescue, Station 70, are scheduled to lighting the sky with fireworks at dark – as they have for the past few years.
     Everyone is invited to bring chairs and blankets to the James H. Cobb Park to enjoy this fun, family event on Saturday, July 1.
     Everyone who is coming to the event is asked to please bring a canned item to donate to the Food For Kids Backpack Program. This program provides food for children.

Here are a couple of more stormy scenes.

Moon In The Pines

Appearing in the needles of this giant pine tree, located on The Ink Pad property in the unrecorded subdivision known as Jemlands in Levy County, the moon shines during the early morning on one day this week (June 11-17). {The moon is that white dot in the left center of the frame. This particular pine is relatively big, and the moon, although much larger, is relatively far away.}
