The Eldorado Men’s Club again sponsored the July 4th Celebration and Fireworks this year! Attendees to this years celebration found food from a number of area organizations, entertainment including a variety of inflatables for kids and an Annual 5K Walk and a 5K Run conducted by the Eldorado High School Foundation to help raise funds for EHS Scholarships.
The 5k walk also helped raise money for EHS scholarships. The walkers started the 5k course one minute after the runners left the starting line.
A variety of inflatables were set up at the event and were popular with the younger children.
The 10th annual 5K run for the Eldorado High School Foundation started at 7 p.m. with 48 runners and walkers registered. The event raises funds to provide scholarships for EHS students.
