The Hazel Miller Foundation has awarded the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce a $30,000 grant supporting its annual Fourth of July activies, which includes parades and the popular fireworks show at Civic Stadium.
An Edmonds Kind of 4th is a nonprofit event.
The most-recent grant assures that the community-driven celebration will march through downtown Edmonds and illuminate the skyline with fireworks this July 4 and for years to come, says the chamber.
“Outstanding,” said Chamber President Ron Clyborne in a news release. “The chamber is very grateful to be awarded this grant and we applaud the Hazel Miller Foundation’s commitment to support the continuance of this special community celebration. A win-win for all and a win for many years!”
As part of its annual giving program, the Hazel Miller grant will continue for the next three to five years. It willl then be reviewed by the foundation.
The 2012 foundation grant will provide financial support for the daylong Fourth of July celebration, which includes a 5K Fun Run, children’s parade, main parade and evening concerts and fireworks.
Hazel Miller and her husband Morris were longtime Edmonds residents.
