Community Connections: Heather Lenke

School’s out and summer is here and you know what that means- 4th of July is right around the corner! I would like to introduce you to Heather Lenke, President of the Richfield 4th of July Committee! This is Heather’s first year as President and she jumped right in! She has found it so rewarding to connect with so many community members and supportive businesses.

Heather is most excited about this year’s Street Dance! The Street Dance is on July 3rd and kicks off at 4pm with a live radio broadcast from Radio Rey! After that, there will be live music and DJs, so you and your community can dance the night away. Heather has kids from 5-18 years old and found it important to create events this year that children of all ages can enjoy- which is no small task! She starts her day with coffee and I hope she has enough on hand because the 4th of July Party kicks off with family night on July 2 and ends with Fireworks, sponsored by our very own Best Buy.

If you want to find out more about the amazing party Heather and the committee has planned, check out their website here. Better yet, if you want your company to volunteer during these 3 days, email Heather here. This is one of our biggest celebrations of the year, let’s all make a point to be a part of it!
