Lebanon — A July 4 celebration will feature a yard sale, pie buffet, road races, field games and dancing.

The yard sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in front of the Upper Valley Senior Center, 10 Campbell St. It will benefit Spark Community Center, which recently opened in the old junior high building on Bank Street.

The second annual Great American All-You-Can-Eat Pie Buffet will begin at 10 a.m. inside the senior center. The buffet, which includes sweet and savory pies, will continue until 2 p.m. or until the pies are gone, organizers said in a recent news release.

They are available at the door or in advance from Rotarians. Take-out is also available — two slices for $7. For more information, contact Bruce Bergeron at 603-667-8254.
