Who needs a car when you have a boat?

Mount Sterling’s First Church of the Nazarene opted for a boat rather than a car for its entry in the July 4th parade. The church was promoting its “Sailing the High Seas”-themed Vacation Bible School, set for July 14-17. (Call 740-869-3127.)

Church shows patriotism

The United Church of Mount Sterling was among the organizations that put together floats for the Mount Sterling Community Center’s July 4th celebration.
