    The July 4th week­end and Daniel Boone Days is just around the cor­ner. For those who might be new to Ger­maine, Daniel Boone Days is our pic­nic in the park, politi­cians kiss­ing babies, parade through down­town, patri­ot­ic hol­i­day fes­ti­val.
    Sat­ur­day, July 3 will see the coro­na­tion of the Pio­neer Queen, and on Sun­day, the parade. Both events are orga­nized by the Daugh­ters of Ger­maine.
    Last year we had an ice cri­sis, but John Arra­to­la promised that he would order plen­ty of ice in advance this year. While the store will be closed for the parade and pic­nic, ice will be avail­able for all who need it.
    Daniel Boone Days is so name because of sup­posed fam­i­ly ties between Boone and the Van Bib­bers, a found­ing fam­i­ly of Ger­maine.
