Intermittent rain on Saturday failed to dampen the spirits of several hundred area residents who gathered at Sartwell Memorial Park to observe the nation’s birthday with live music, free food and traditional family games.
Town of Livingston Mayor J. T. Taylor said he and the town council, along with volunteers, had planned for the event for two months and made the decision to go ahead with the festivities no matter the weather. Taylor said local residents and businesses had donated $7,000 in cash, goods and services to put on the festival, and the decision was made to celebrate the day despite the rain in appreciation for the generosity of those who made the donations.
