Johnson Lane area July 4th bike parade planned

Staff reports

The first family activity to be sponsored by the new Heart and Home Club of the Johnson Lane area will be a July 4th bike parade.

Actually to be held on Sunday, July 2, the parade is open to kids (and parents) on bikes – with helmets, according to club organizer Elizabeth Furry.

The parade participants will meet at Johnson Lane and Clapham. The parade will start at 6:30 p.m. and proceed to the Johnson Lane Park across from the Pinon Hills Elementary School.

Children are encouraged to decorate their bikes for the parade, Furry said. Sno-cones will be available at the park after the parade.

The new Heart and Home Club will meet the first and third Wednesday of each month at Furry’s home, 2569 Henning Lane, 6:30-8:30 p.m. The group’s focus is on homemaking and “fun” activities, she said, and each meeting will have a theme.

The theme for July 5 is “Lazy Summer Days,” and the members will make wind chimes. July 19’s meeting will be “Christmas in July.”

“Family events will eventually be coming along,” Furry said. She plans a scarecrow contest in the fall, and members will drive around the neighborhood to vote on their favorite scarecrows made by area families.

“We’re going to do goofy things,” Furry said. “Then we’ll have a canned food drive in October to jump start the holiday season.”
