We are kicking off the planning for the 4th annual Hercules Celebration
that will happen on Tuesday July 4th.
We will once again have the following:
1 Mile Fun Run or Walk
Kids Run for 3-7 Year Olds
The Traditional 4th of July Parade
The Festival in the Park
The Kids Zone
Entertainment and Live Music
Proceeds from this year's event will go to creating a memorial to honor all Veterans here in Hercules
Mark your calendars to join us once again
The success of this event is based upon the sponsorship, donations and volunteers of our community
Our web site will be updated in the next day or so
or you can contact me at 510-590-7932.
The hosting organization this year is a new non profit association in Hercules called
Celebrate Hercules Association
It is a 501c3 so donations are tax deductible
We are expecting that the Hercules Rotary Club will still be an active participant in this event.
