Planning under way for Paxton's Fourth of July celebration

PAXTON — Preparations are under way for the Paxton Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration at Pells Park.

The chamber’s executive director, Kristina Phelan, is chairing the committee that is organizing the celebration. More volunteers are being sought to assist.

“We have a great committee of people who have graciously volunteered their time each year to make this event happen,” Phelan said in the chamber’s March newsletter. “However, we are down a few volunteers this year and could really use some help.”

Needed are volunteers to help set up chairs and decorate for the celebration on July 3; to help organize children’s games; and to help organize the entertainment.

The committee meets for an hour each month to discuss progress in organizing the celebration.

For more information about volunteering, call Phelan at 379-4655.
