Harmony celebrated Fourth of July with a Bang

By Barb Jeffers

Residents of Harmony, Minn., area visitors, and folks coming “back home” were thoroughly entertained from Wednesday, July 3 until Sunday, July 7, 2013 with Harmony’s Fourth of July Celebration. The town of Harmony hosts a spectacular July Fourth Celebration year after year with 2013 being no exception.

Wednesday, July 3 began the festivities with the beer tent sponsored by the Harmony Conservation Club who also brought Karaoke Joe to the beer tent Wednesday evening for anyone who wished to show their vocal talent.

July 4th began with a hot breakfast of pancakes, sausage, milk, and coffee. According to Kyle Heibel with the Harmony Conservation Club who sponsored the event a large crowd of over 200 people were served at the all-you-can-eat breakfast. Also serving breakfast were 17 year-old Sarah Reicks - Miss Harmony 2013, 16 year-old Victoria Peterson - First Attendant, and sixteen year old Sydnie Huffman - Second Attendant.

Kyle Heibel explained that the Harmony Conservation Club is involved in several activities one of which is working with pheasants in the area and the Wildlife and Habitat Club and the club also does tree planting. Kyle stated that the Harmony Conservation Club has Trap Teams that compete with other towns which is an activity the members enjoy.

A Best Shot 9 Hole Golf Tournament was held on July 4 with participants playing with friends and family members. One such group of friends was Jim Beckman, Scott Evenson, Paul Brokken, and Jim Bakken, all of Harmony. The foursome had an enjoyable day with friends, which was made more memorable by taking fourth place in the tournament. Andy Todd and Charlie Todd of Harmony also made a special memory together by playing the tournament as a Father-Son Team.

Hammell Equipment sponsored the very popular Kid’s Pedal Pull for the third year, which was State Sanctioned meaning the first, second, and third place finishers will go on to State Competition in Hutchinson, Minn. on September 7, 2013. From the State level the children (ages 4 - 11) have the opportunity to advance to National and then International Competitions. Cyril Myren, with his grandchildren Silas, age three, and Emma, age eight enjoyed themselves at the Pedal Pull as did everyone in attendance.

Brooks Lea, age three, who attended the Pedal Pull with his parents, Andrew and Emily, and big sister Madison, age eight, .....
