Message from the Mayor

July is the seventh month of the year. It is considered the warmest month of the northern hemisphere and the coldest month in the southern hemisphere. July is also known for dog days which are the hot sultry days of summer. Take consideration of staying cool during these hot days.

Several events happened in the month of July. On July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress. To celebrate this milestone in history the City of Opp, Frank Jackson State Park, and Frank Jackson Trail Masters invite you to spend the 4th of July at the lake Saturday July 4th 2015. Park admission is free after 10:00am. Vendors will be selling their goods and inflatables will provide fun for the kids. Trail Masters are selling drinks and Opp Fire Department will sell hotdogs for your enjoyment. A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to Frank Jackson State Park. Free entertainment and watermelon at 2:00pm. A free fireworks show will end the day. Join the fun Saturday July 4th and help support our park.

On July 16, 1969 the Apollo 11 Lunar landing mission began with lift off from Kennedy Space Center. Four days later on July 20, 1969 Astronaut Neil Armstrong took his first steps onto the moon. His famous words as he stepped onto the moon’s surface “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” made history for space exploration.

Majors and Pre-Majors have district tournaments July 1st- July 5th. 15U state tournaments begin July 4th-July 7th. Friday July 3rd ends football sign ups. Please support our youth in these games. Their hard work and dedication means a lot to the city of Opp. If you have questions contact Willie or Heather at Parks and Rec (334-493-7970).
