With a little help, we can make 4th special in Valle Vista

Things are starting to shape up for the Fourth of July celebration here in Valle Vista.

The day will begin with the golf tournament. The format will be a four-person scramble - pick your own team. Sign-in will be at 7 a.m., tee-off at 8 a.m. The entry fee of $45 for members and $65 for non-members includes a BBQ lunch. There is a sign-up sheet at the Clubhouse. For more information, contact Rudy Gonzales at (928) 757-0329.

The BBQ dinner will be served starting at 4 p.m. with a price of $10 for adults and $5 for children 11 and under. Children's games will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30. Drawings for the raffle will start a 6 p.m. There will be music provided by DJ Rays the Roof and, of course, the fireworks display at dusk.

The committee still needs help from our community to make this another great Fourth of July. They need hole sponsors for the tournament, donations for the raffle, stuffed animals for the children's games and people to purchase the 50/50 tickets. If you can help in any way, please contact Sharon French at (928) 757-5708.
