If you are interested in helping out at the 4th of July event, please contact committee chairman Tim Grafton at

If you look at the Sponsors page, you will see that contributions are significantly below last year's levels, leaving the 4th of July Committee faced with a large deficit going into the event. They get NO funding from the town...all of their funding comes from fundraising events and donations from people (and businesses) such as yourselves. If you want to continue Bringing Back the 4th, please make a donation, in any amount.

The 4th of July Committee needs you!

In order to make this a success, the committee needs your help. Volunteers are needed in a number of areas, such as: Entertainment, Vendors & Infrastructure. Whether you can give just a few hours, want to become a full-blown committee member, or anything in between, your participation is greatly needed.

Help is especially needed in the following areas:

Event set-up:   July 3
Event assistants:   July 4
Manning activities & booths:   July 4
Event clean-up:   July 4 & 5

If you're willing to help out this year, go to the Volunteer page and contact the appropriate committee chair to find out how you can help. This is a great way for Confirmation candidates and High-schoolers to fulfill their Community Service hours!

Community members are also invited to help support this year's event by making a donation in any amount. Donations can be made on-line here or by check. Mail a check in any amount, payable to "NR 4th of July", to
