The New Mark Commons Annual 4th of July Celebration is shaping up to be another glorious, fun-filled day. You won’t want to miss it, so come to the pool and jump in!

Besides the usual activities like raft rides for kids, a greased watermelon contest and the annual egg toss, there will be lunch catered by the Bean Bag for hot dogs, burgers, grilled chicken and more (12-1:30 p.m.). So come hungry!

But that’s not all! We’ll have entertainment in the Clubhouse from 11-11:45 a.m.! Grammy-nominated recording artist Ray Owen will present “Hats Off To America,” an award-winning show for kids of all ages that will take you on a musical American adventure tour. Ray has performed with such legendary entertainers as Arlo Guthrie, Garth Brooks and Willie Nelson. Check him out at
