WELCOME TO OUR 125TH ANNUAL
INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION
Today’s events are planned, directed, and financed mainly by the efforts of the all-volunteer Takoma Park Independence Day Committee, with the cooperation of the Departments of the City of Takoma Park and the Mayor and Council.
The Committee is a small group of volunteers who work hundreds of hours each year to make the celebration a success. While a City grant covers about forty percent of the total cost of today’s celebration, the Committee raises the remainder mainly by soliciting donations from local businesses, churches, civic and service organizations, and individuals like you. We also raise funds by selling raffle tickets, holding yard sales, and leasing vendor spaces. Your financial support and volunteer help are greatly appreciated. You can make a donation through PayPal® at TakomaPark4th.org, or by check mailed to the Committee at 8003 Park Crest Drive, Silver Spring, MD 20910. Anyone willing to volunteer a few hours of their time or to join the Committee, please call (301) 588-1635.
Thanks To

Please Contribute to Takoma Park Independence Day Activities Through PayPal.
We are a nonprofit 501(c)(4) civic organization funded by the community of Takoma Park and area residents like you. Note that 501(c)(4) donations are not tax deductible.
