With July 4th approaching, everyone’s thoughts are focused on the red, white and blue. But you don’t have to wait until the 4th to show your patriotic spirit! On June 24th, the College of the Ozarks will host its 29th Annual Honor America Celebration. All ages will enjoy this free event that is open to the public and takes place on the college’s campus. Grab a spot on the lawn with your blankets or lawn chairs and settle in for a fun evening!
