Morrison Ruritan’s annual Fourth of July celebration didn’t have the same bang on its rescheduled date of Labor Day.The baby show, the kids games, and the fireworks all remained on the schedule as usual. The one thing that was different was the crowd.It was a noticeably smaller gathering Monday in downtown Morrison as the community celebrated Independence Day two months late. Unrelenting rain in early July forced organizers to postpone the first event.Morrison Mayor and Ruritan member Sue Anderson said the low attendance will hurt the organization’s bottom line.“This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” said Anderson.
