Morrison was full of people Saturday evening celebrating the Fourth of July with games, food, and of course fireworks. 

The threat of bad weather was not enough to keep people from celebrating Independence Day with the Morrison Ruritan Club. The rain held off long enough for the many visitors to participate in the different activities. Morrison Mayor Sue Anderson was thrilled with the large turnout.

“It has gone really well. I have been really pleased with the turnout” said Anderson.

The Morrison Ruritan building was packed with people playing Bingo for prizes and getting something to eat from the concessions stand. A cornhole tournament was happening outside as well as a cake walk. For the low cost of 25 cents, people could try their luck for a dessert from the cake walk table. 

The ice cream machine was the big hit of the night. Mike Holland kept busy making more ice cream for the long lines of people and making sure the machine was running smoothly. 

The David Lawrence Band provided live music and the night ended in a bang with the fireworks show. Anderson was thankful for the community’s support and participation in their Fourth of July celebration. 

“We really appreciate everyone coming out to support us,” said Anderson.
