 Get Involved!

One good way to get involved is to help out at the July 4th Celebration. Here’s how:

  1. Show up, bring your family, and have a good time. The food from the grill is great, and the pool helps to beat the heat.
  2. Volunteer for a couple of hours. Don’t feel like volunteering has to take your whole day. Show up early, around 9:00am and help to set up. Or show up after 4:00pm to clean up. An hour or two will do.
  3. Sell some raffle tickets. The July 4 Celebration is one of our two biggest fundraisers during the year.

There is no need to sign up to volunteer. Simply show up the day of the event, look for another volunteer, and start helping. If you have questions, please contact Michael Posey.

See you on the 4th!
