Not sure what to wear to this year’s 50th Anniversary 4th of July Parade?

This year, let’s fill the street with the commemorative 4th of July T-shirt designed by own Richard Stanley. Price of the tees is $15 but, if you pre-order by May 31, the cost is $12.50. This red-white-and-blue tee has a small pocket logo on the front and a design on the back featuring the first parade in 1961.

Let’s make the 50th Anniversary as memorable as the first!

Constellation Energy will be filming an advertisement on Glyndon Avenue on May 23 and 24.

The Glyndon Community Association’s water pipe project task force has coordinated with the County and the film production crew to make sure the two efforts do not conflict.

The 80-member film crew will park at Glyndon United Methodist Church and  Glyndon Village Center. The film production crew will have several local college students in safety vests as well as an off-duty policeman making sure parking goes smoothly and the actors find their way to the shoot.

The crew also has promised to scheduling loading and unloading so as not to conflict with the water pipe construction.
