RB Spirit of the Fourth 2016 is in the history books and the planning and preparation for the 2017 event is well underway. 2016 was a huge success and we look forward to an even bigger and more successful full day of spectacular fun and patriotic celebration this year.

Putting on an event of this magnitude requires a cadre' of dedicated volunteers and the financial support of 
sponsors and members of the community.  Your Spirit of the Fourth Committee began very early to encourage support for a wide variety of sponsors. Some of the fund raising events will occur earlier in the year to ensure we can meet our financial obligations on time. Check out all of our 2017 events through the navigation bar "Special Events" to your left. Please consider donating what you can afford to ensure we have the budget to conduct the full range of events we are planning for July 4th, 2017.

The Spirit of the Fourth committee has chosen "Saluting Our Wounded Warriors" as the theme for Spirit of the Fourth 2017. The Parade Grand Marshal representing this theme will be Matthew Georger. Watch this space for his photograph and biography!

For 2017, the Spirit of the Fourth Committee organized two important fund raising events to be held in April and May. These events are "The Comedy Show" and "Poodles on Parade". Flyers for these events follow. Please join us for these fun and exiting events and find them an easy way to contribute to raising the funds necessary to present the wide range of special events of Spirit of the Fourth 2017.

We Need Your Help
In order for our celebration to be a success, we need to raise over $50,000. Your donation enables us to continue providing special events which include the parade and our spectacular fireworks display!

If you had fun last year and/or are planning to enjoy the celebration this year, please consider contributing. Our sponsors provide some of the funding, but we rely on members of the community to meet the budget. Thank You!
