McDaniels said the 2022 Independence Day SummerFest celebration is shaping up to be a great day.

“We have events and activities planned from beginning to end,” McDaniels. “We have arts and crafts ($60) and food booths ($100) available by calling 334-735-2723 or 618-0852 or visiting Jackson Hardware in downtown Brundidge.
