All Friends of the 4th–Hello and welcome to 2020!
Your Farms-Prides 4th of July Committee is already planning this year’s Celebration.
We have several announcements to make.
First, the annual fundraising Auction will be held on Saturday, April 4 at the home of the Farms Prides Community Association - the Hastings House at 14 Oak Street in the Farms. We are now actively soliciting donations and will be selling tickets to the event shortly. Please contact the people below if you have any questions, would like to donate, or purchase a ticket.
Secondly, we are dramatically increasing the prize money for the Horribles Parade. The first place Horribles float prize will now be $1,000, with second at $750, and third at $500. This is double the amount of 2019. Theme prizes are also being increased. However, it is a Horrible Parade and that’s where the emphasis will be!!
Third, we are establishing a Horribles Parade Float Hall of Fame! This will be posted on the site. Please send along your nominee(s) with a brief description and picture of the float. We hope to have the first inductees to this Hall of Fame displayed before the 4th.
We’re also soliciting your 4th memories over the years. Please send along stories and pictures of past 4th celebrations. Go over to the “About” and hit the “Memories” tab to send along your thoughts.
Let us know of any links that may be useful for the site.
This email is also the launch of our web site for 2020. If you have any ideas to enhance the site and its content please let us know.
Finally, please have your friends and family send along the email addresses of all who would like to receive our emails for this season, if they have not already.
