With Independence Day just days away, luminaries are now available.  There are two ways to get them—at Doyle’s Market or when a Raft-O-Rama committee member knocks on your door.  

The idea grows a bit every year.  Clark Lakers line the lakefront with the luminaries and light them as evening shadows fall.  The soft glow is magical.  This year the lighting is set for Sunday, July 3rd. 

In each tote bag are 10 luminaries.  The bottom of each luminary is filled with sand to keep it anchored.  The small candle (included) is lit in the evening, and quite often, you’ll find them still burning early the next morning.  Contribution for a tote bag containing ten luminaries is $15.  

The project is the work of Raft-O-Rama.  Over the last couple weeks, they have ramped up the production line, and now this year’s output is ready for action.  

No doubt ad hoc fireworks will be set off by residents.  Don’t miss Mahalak’s Freedom Fireworks on July 9th.  Click here for details.
