Here's what's happening in Hancock on Thursday, July 4th.

The Hancock Volunteer Fire Department will host its annual July 4th Hot Dog Cookout Fundraiser from 12 noon to 1 p.m. on Hancock Point. Grilled hot dogs, chips, and sodas will be available by donation at the Hancock Point Boathouse on the corner of Wharf Road and Bay Avenue. The fundraiser supports the Fire and Emergency Medical Services provided by the Department to Hancock and surrounding communities. A Hancock Point Community 4th of July Parade will precede the fundraiser.

At 1 p.m.there will be a concert at the Hancock Monument Lot at the junction of Route 1 and Hancock Point Road featuring musicians from the Pierre Monteux Music Festival performing several lively musical selections appropriate to the July 4th holiday. The concert is free and everyone is invited.

The Hancock Comprehensive Planning Committee will have an information table at both events with a short questionnaire for residents to express their opinion about the future of the town.

Thanks to David Wildes for the information.
