Sights from area Fourth festivities

Norway had its Fourth of July celebration Monday morning. Members, past and present, of the volunteer fire department from Wausaukee, Wis., re-enacted the historic photo of the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima during World War II. On the float were Dave Messar, John Nehring, Bill Orlando, Rich Wainwright, Eric VanLanner and Harry Tischendorf. (Terri Castelaz/Daily News photo)

Norway had its Fourth of July celebration Monday morning.

On the float were Dave Messar, John Nehring, Bill Orlando, Rich Wainwright, Eric VanLanner and Harry Tischendorf. While it was their first time in the Norway event — they appeared in Iron Mountain-Kingsford as well — it was the second year of doing the float “to honor our veterans and their families,” Wainwright said. The second photo shows some of the Norway area veterans who took part in the parade. The Norway City Band marched in the parade as well. (Terri Castelaz/Daily News photos)
