Planning is underway for the 75th Rotary of Brazil 4th of July Celebration at Forest Park.

It will feature free nightly entertainment, a carnival, midway rides and games and local food vendors for plenty of fun culminating in a fireworks display at 10 p.m., July 4.

Club members are now selling $10,000 grand prize raffle tickets, which cost $10 for three or $5 for one. Each ticket provides a chance to win the grand prize drawing, scheduled for 11 p.m., July 4, after the fireworks event.

In case of rain, the grand prize drawing will be delayed until after the fireworks July 5.

Various local donated prizes and gift certificates will also be drawn for during the days prior to the grand prize drawing.

The Rotary Club of Brazil is also pleased to bring back the SIRA Go-Kart race on the circle track, located beside the Forest Park Golf Course. The event will take place on Father's Day weekend, June 19-20.

Discount priced advance sale carnival ride bracelets will go on sale June 1, at area banks. Details will be announced.

Entertainment is shaping up and nearly finalized for each evening.

Local non-profit food booth vendor applications are available on the Rotary website at www.brazilrotary.org. Rotarian Sam Crawn is in charge of local food booths and may be reached at 448-2877 for more information. In addition, those interested may also mail or deliver a completed application, copy of organization's non-profit tax exemption certificate and booth reservation fee to Crawn at Sam's Do-It-Best Hardware, 105 S. Forest Ave., Brazil.

The Northview and Clay City high school band fish fry will take place Monday, June 28. Those tickets go on sale soon and will be available from band students.

Entertainment sponsors are being sought to help deliver free-to-the-public stage entertainment and various parts of the carnival possible. To get entertainment sponsorship information, call Frank Farmer at 443-2424.

As always, I'm looking forward to this year's Celebration. I hope the local community does not take this for granted. Not only is this an important fundraising event, but it also brings people to our community whose spending may spill over into the local economy.
