  • Your help is needed to make this year’s July 4th celebration in Hockessin a success!
    Back in 2005, the Hockessin-Greenville Rotary Club agreed to coordinate and fund the 4th of July activities in Hockessin, with support from the community.  The day’s events include the highly anticipated “neighborhood relays” for children in the morning, the community parade in the afternoon and a spectacular fireworks display at dusk.  The parade and fireworks have become a tradition for families not just from Hockessin, but from all over New Castle County and parts of nearby Pennsylvania.
    Regretfully, our fundraising efforts have fallen short of the approximate $20,000 needed to cover the cost for the day’s events, primarily due to a decrease in corporate sponsorships.
    We need the financial support of businesses, civic associations and individuals to help us ensure that the Hockessin July 4th events continue the traditions and provide lasting memories. 
    If you would like to help, please make your check payable to the Hockessin Greenville Rotary Foundation and mail it to P.O. Box 1653, Hockessin, Delaware, 19707. You can also make a credit card donation on our website, located at www.hgrotary.org.  Click on the “Donate Now” link on the top bar.  You will find additional information on the Hockessin-Greenville Rotary Club and the July 4th celebration, including pictures from past years, on the site. 
    The Hockessin-Greenville Rotary Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
    Thank you for your support.
