Fourth of July

It’s time to start thinking about Sewanee’s Fourth of July celebration. This year’s theme is “Sewanee Purple Mountain Majesty.” The planning committee is accepting nominations for grand marshal of the parade. The person nominated should exhibit community involvement and be someone who has made a significant contribution to our life together. Please send the name and a brief description of why you are nominating this person by June 1 to Jade Barry.
It takes many volunteers to make Sewanee’s Fourth of July events happen. Help is needed with the parade, with organizing the events of the day and by serving on the planning committee. If you are interested in helping, contact Barry or attend the next committee meeting. The planning committee will be meeting from now until the big day. Meetings are at 5 p.m., Tuesdays, at the Sewanee Senior Center, on the following dates: May 12, May 26, June 2, June 9, June 16, June 23, June 30 and July 1.
