In the District's Palisades neighborhood, Tracie Lanter walks by a fence with a flag in her hair. Watching from atop the fence are, from left, Tucker Akridge, 6; Hank Maddox, 6; Kakie Magruder, 5; Madison Magruder, 6; and Anne Strawbrich, 5. Since 1966, the Palisades Citizens Association, with the support of local businesses, has organized an annual July 4th parade and picnic. Everyone is encouraged to get involved.
