Walls' widow, Linda, is this year's event chairman. The celebration will include a full day of activities, and a variety of food and craft vendors. Games, prizes, face painting and more will be featured, including a moon- bounce and some athletic contests for kids. There will be live music all day, starting right after the parade ends. A DJ and Karoake by Doug and Carolyn will highlight the musical entertainment and chil- dren will be entertained by a show just for them, featuring special guest characters. There will also be a performance by the Nanti- coke Indian dancers, a magician, and a vocal performance by Katie Cassedy. The Grand Marshall of this year's parade is Anamae Rogers, who has resided in the Oak Or- chard/Riverdale community for more than 50 years. Rogers is a charter member of the Indian Riv- er Volunteer Fire Company ladies auxiliary and the Community Church of Oak Orchard. The parade will line up at 9 a.m. at Sussex 311 for the 10 a.m. start. - Anyone interested in participating Dagsboro Church of God hosts July 4th celebration The Dagsboro Church of God will host a day of special activities on Saturday, July 4, on the church grounds.
