Patriotic 5K Run Sponsors

Please check out the 5K run page for a listing of the CORPORATE Sponsors.  Please remember that they are helping the entire event, and for the Hill School for providing the staging area.

Souvenir Caps!

A long time ago, the committee wanted to honor the Little League’s All-Star game players with official July 4th caps.  In 1985, the committee started selling them to the public.  Over the years they have become a treasured collectible.  The original price of $5.00 is still kept, to allow the most a chance to help the committee raise funds.  They are purchased directly from the manufacturer to maximize the profit, just like Wal-Mart.  You may purchase at Memorial Park on Friday, July 2, or along the parade route on Saturday, July 3.  The chances of getting one of these after the parade is slim.  Here is this years’ edition:
