Meherrin celebrates independence

The heat and delayed celebration didn’t stop the Meherrin community from gathering at the firehouse on Saturday for fun, fireworks and festivities for the family. The annual Independence Day celebration drew people from across the county and the area to commemorate America’s freedom.
