residents and businesses, organizes and produces a

Culver's, 290 S. Schmale, Carol Stream. If you dine or
carry out food on those days between 10:30am and
8pm, and MENTION the 4th of July Parade, Culver's
will donate 15% of your bill to help fund the parade.
Your business may want to sponsor or
provide a float for the parade or march in the parade.
