C’mon down area families and friends!   The fourth annual Clermont BBQ in the Park is right around the corner! 

The Monday, July 15 event, which is hosted by the Clermont Community Club, will be held at the Clermont park starting at 4 p.m.  

Proceeds from this event will go towards helping to fund future events such as Halloween for Kids, the annual Santa Store, and the Easter Egg Hunt.  Proceeds will also go towards the Miss Clermont Scholarship, maintenance of Hart-Parr buildings as well as the park shelters.

The annual event, which started four years ago when the Clermont Community Club decided to begin a summer park event, will also feature a silent auction from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. featuring over 35 items donated by local businesses.

Raffle Tickets can be purchased prior to the BBQ at Iowa Diecast Toys, Dean Chiropractic, Alesha's Salon, Kerndt Bros Bank, Body Kneads Salon & The Green Door prior to the CCC BBQ.  Tickets can be purchased at the event up until the drawing begins.  Tickets are $1 each or six for $5.
