(480) 283 - 5163 ROC 255833 The annual 4th of July celebrations in Quartzsite was hosted this year by the Town of Quartzsite and the Parks & Recreation Board. It was a huge suc- cess thanks to everyone who participated by helping out or just by being part of the event. Michelle Kaufman, from the Recreation Dept., brought out the water slip 'n slide and sprinklers, and the kids just loved it. Other activites included Free Rock painting, water balloon toss, water relay races, and the famous Frozen T-Shirt Contest. This event has grown to be more popular over the years and 50 t-shirts were not enough, so Rain said she would increase to 60 next year. The VFW Post 769 once again provided free hot dogs for the kids as well as hamburgers & hot dogs for sale. Operation Hero Comfort sold water and drinks to raise funds for the boxes they send to troops in harms way. A huge thank you to Richard Oldham, who again supplied delicious free watermel- on for everyone. Marie Wister offered free glitter tattoos for the kids. Mr. Kool Seal held a raffle fundraiser, raising over $300 for the Friends of the Quartzsite Food Bank. The First Baptist Church sold Mexican candy for sale. Quartzsite PTA sold snow cones and had a bake sale to raise funds for a new PA system for QES. Dave "Bear" and Janet Collier brought their Old West trailer to advertise the upcoming Buck Connors Western Days. Quartzsite Chamber & Tourism offered free bumper stickers and sold reus- able water bottles. My La Paz youth club, AZARA, displayed solar powered items and held a solar powered car race. ����� | S���� B���C�� Candidates J'aime Morgaine running for AZ Senate and Karen Hobbs run- ning for La Paz Superior Court Judge also attended meeting constituents. The best part of the festivities for most people, after all the great food and fun, was the fireworks display. The Town provided the fireworks and the Fire District put on the display. People all over the town enjoyed the breathtaking display. It was another memorable community event, thanks to all the volun- teers who help make it happen!
