Spaghetti dinner set to raise money for July 4 fireworks

The Elk River Independence Day Committee has scheduled a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for the third annual Elk River Independence Day Celebration.

The dinner will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 19 at the Elk River American Legion. Tickets will be $9 for adults, and $4 for kids 12 and under and seniors.

Proceeds from the dinner will go toward this year’s fireworks show. The group hopes to raise enough money to have a $15,000 show, a program and entertainment.

The committee is looking for more members to help with planning and preparing the event, and is looking for representation from local school, community and athletic organizations as well as from service clubs. For more information, call 763-441-3500.
