Fourth of July Festivities
Celebrate America’s birthday in a town full of VFW values.
At 11 a.m. Wednesday, July 4, over 40 dignitaries, individuals and organizations will parade down FM 2673 from Old Cranes Mill Road through downtown Startzville before finishing at the event’s sponsor, Startzville Memorial VFW Post 8800, 7755 FM 2673.
This part of FM 2673 will be closed to traffic.
(Tourists, Startzville, located south of the lake, is technically Canyon Lake.)
VFW will sell raffle tickets and serve up hamburgers and hotdogs after the parade.
You’ll have to wait until July 6 for fireworks 9 p.m. to midnight at Turkey Cove, 2386 Colleen Dr,, Canyon Lake.
Wow, we have this lovely website that keeps us up to date on what is happening around the lake and someone has to be picky about a sentence using a little southern slang. You are just taking it too literal.
I happen to know the author of this FREE site is a well educated, proper English speaking person.
To how about some grammar: get a life!
OK, looks like fun. But I do have a question regarding grammar, or lack thereof, in this article.
The article says “VFW will sell raffle tickets and serve up hamburgers…” “serve UP”? Doesn’t it work just as well to say they’ll just “SERVE” hamburgers? What’s the deal with “serving UP”? What does “up” add to the sentence?
Yeah, I know, I know, it’s trivial. And today’s young people, especially, don’t give a rip about proper grammar. But the English language is going down the tubes, a little bit at a time. Somebody needs to shine some light on it, before all of us wind up grunting like animals to communicate, if anybody cares.
At the end of the day, they’ll SERVE hamburgers – no “UP” required.
