[June 26, 2012]
The 4th of July Fireworks & Celebration
Committee invites you to a three-piece fried chicken fundraiser. The
dinner will be hosted at the American Legion, 1740 Fifth St., on
Friday from 4:30 to 7 p.m. The menu will also include potato salad, baked
beans and roll.
The cost is $7.50 per ticket and advance purchases may be made at
Lincoln Park District. A limited number of tickets will be available
at the event. All proceeds from the dinner will be used to offset
the costs of Lincoln's fireworks.
Anyone wanting to donate toward
the expenses of the fireworks may do so at any time. Your gifts will
allow the tradition of hometown fireworks to remain a reality. Make
your donation checks payable to Lincoln Fireworks Fund in care of
Lincoln Park District, 1400 Primm Road. The park district encourages
any area resident wishing to be a member of the 4th of July
Fireworks & Celebration Committee to join. Simply ask one of the
committee members working the chicken dinner or call Lincoln Park
District at 732-8770.
The annual children's old-fashioned walking parade will be on
July 4. Join the group at Scully Park at 9 a.m. for registration.
Judging will begin at 9:30. The parade will start after the judging.
Parents are encouraged to accompany their children in the parade.
Parents who do not walk in the parade can meet their children at the
Lincoln Park District, where the parade will conclude and the
winners will be announced.

After the parade and prize presentations, join in a water balloon
fight versus the Lincoln Fire Department. Everyone else will be on
Team Park District, including the mayor and who knows, maybe the
chief of police too. The fire department will bring a fire truck and
the park district will have water balloons. This has always been a
fun time and everyone is guaranteed to go home soaking wet.
Come on back to the park district early in the evening on the
Fourth for tons of fun. A bags tournament will begin at 6 p.m. with
Mark Tippett as the event coordinator. There will be concessions, a
DJ and, of course, the fireworks at dusk. The American Legion color
guard will be present for the national anthem as well.
