Community members are encouraged to take part in various fundraising initiatives this month to help raise money for Perry’s 4th of July fireworks. The fireworks are 100 percent locally funded.


Those interested in donating can first round-up their grocery bill to the nearest dollar or more. Grocery shoppers will be able to do this at both the Perry Fareway and Hy-Vee stores the week before Memorial Day.


The Raccoon Valley Radio’s Big Red Radio will help kick things off at both locations with a live radio broadcast from 4-6 p.m. on Monday, May 21. The week-long promotion will take place May 21-26 at Fareway and May 21- 28 at Hy-Vee.


Donations may be directed to the Perry Chamber of Commerce at any time by stopping in to 1124 Willis Avenue, Suite A.
