Wonderful community events like the traditional Celebrate Kirkland's Old Fashioned Parade and Fourth of July Fireworks are expensive to produce. They take the support of the community and many, many volunteers. They also need the financial support from both businesses and individuals. On Friday, April 20th, Kirklander Jim O'Farrell and his band, Wikerman, are playing a benefit dance/fundraiser for Celebrate Kirkland at the Eagles Hall on Central Way. The band is donating their time and guests are asked to donate $5 at the door. Show your support for the Fourth of July in Kirkland by coming to this event. You can also contribute to Celebrate Kirkland at www.celebratekirkland.org.
