The Village is working with community partners again on planning this year's Fourth of July parade and celebration. For the parade, the Village needs a number of volunteers willing to coordinate the parade lineup. In addition, the Village is in need for fun vehicles to transport some of the parade participants. Convertibles and jeeps tend to work the best.
If you would like to volunteer or utilize your vehicle for the parade, contact Fourth of July Coordinator Sarah DeNeve at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact Sarah by Wednesday, June 19.
