* Master Plan options, specifically related to road and park locations
* Preliminary design concepts

Please join us to offer ideas or simply observe the progress.

The Sixth Annual Crozet Independence Day Parade, Celebration, and Fireworks

Saturday, July 2, 2016

Making a Contribution

These events involve a lot of donated time from a lot of individuals and donated materials and services from local companies, but it still cannot happen without financial contributions, too.

  • You can contribute right now, online, by clicking on this link:  Donate to CIDC through Network for Good
  • Please put “CIDC donation” in the Designation box.

 

Of course, we appreciate all donations, but to boost our efforts to cover expenses, we have three leadership donor levels and we are hoping that you will show your support by becoming a lead patron this year.

  • For a gift of $500 or more, we will prominently display your company banner you provide at the entrance to the park during the event, identify your patron status in the Crozet Gazette and event handbill and provide you with ten passes to the celebration in the park.
  • For a gift of $250, you will receive acknowledgment in the Crozet Gazette and event handbill and four passes to the celebration in the park.
  • And, for a gift of $100 you will receive two passes to the celebration in the park, published thanks in the Crozet Gazette and the event handbill.

July will be here before you know it.  Won’t you join us by contributing whatever you can afford?  If being a lead patron is too much this, please send whatever you can afford.   Your contribution is tax-deductible charitable donation. Thank you!

It takes a village – won’t you help out on Saturday, July 2 for an hour?

We need your help for just an hour or two on Sunday, July 2.  Below is the website to sign-up to help with the Crozet Independence Day Celebration (CIDC) next Sunday, July 2, between 5PM to 10PM. There are a variety of tasks and time slots. Most of the time slots are only an hour – so there’s lots of ways to help and still enjoy the event.
To sign up, go to:
< Sign-up Genius page coming soon>
When you sign-up it will ask for your name, email and, optionally phone number.  No one else can see your email and phone.  We promise we won’t share it.  It’s helpful for us to have it if something happens and we need to let you know about a last minute change.

We urge church groups, civic and neighborhood associations to sign-up.  Crozet Trails Crew already has volunteered to staff one spot the whole evening!  Let’s see which group can have the most volunteers!

With your help, we can make this Crozet Independence Day celebration the best ever!
