​31st Annual Fourth of July Celebration

Planning continues for the “May the 4th Be With You” celebration. The next planning meeting is at 5 p.m., Monday, May 8, at the Sewanee Senior Center.

Food Vendors Wanted
The Fourth of July committee calls for food vendors to provide a varied menu for our events. Food vendors are welcome at the street dance on Monday, July 3, during the day on Tuesday, July 4, and that evening at the fireworks. Any interested vendors can contact Charles Whitmer at <charles.whitmer@gmail.com>.
For the Children
The Fourth of July committee requests volunteers for the children’s games. If you can do face painting, fortune telling for the children, or if you are available to help run one of the games, please contact Nancy Mann at <nancy.mann@sewanee.edu>. We are also working on rebuilding some games and building new ones, so if you are a handy-man or -woman and would like to help in that regard, contact Nancy.
The Fourth of July committee asks for your monetary help for this year’s festivities. Although some activities charge a small fee, covering the cost of the day, especially our fantastic fireworks show, requires extra funding from the community. If you would like to donate to support your Fourth of July celebration, contact Louise Irwin at 598-5864 or Tracie Sherrill at 598-0040 for more information.
If you have any questions regarding specific information about the Fourth of July, contact Jade Barry at 636-9829 or <jademcbee@gmail.com>.
