Happy Independence Day! Over the weekend our nation celebrated its 245th birthday. Our city celebrated by presenting our third professional 4th of July fireworks show for the Marysville community. I am grateful to live in this country and to serve as mayor of this wonderful city.
With the lifting of most of the state’s pandemic restrictions, the city is eager to kick off the summer season in earnest with the long-anticipated return of outdoor movies, concerts and events. We missed them last year and heard from several residents that many of you did, too. I hope to see you at one of more of these fun, free events presented by your city.
