Fourth of July auction

The Arlington Kiwanis Club will hold its Fourth of July auction at Haller Park to support scholarships for local high school students through Dollars for Scholars.

The event includes two silent auctions, one at 8:30 a.m. and another at 9:30 a.m., as well as a live auction at 10:30 a.m.

Proceeds pay for four $2,000 scholarships awarded to local graduating seniors. Three scholarships go to Arlington High School graduates, and one to a Lakewood High School graduate.

Auction items include furniture, gift baskets, tickets, products and gift certificates from local businesses, and more.

Also up for auction is a flag that has flown over the U.S. Capitol.

Haller Park, 1100 West Ave., is the site of the Arlington Firefighters’ Association Pancake Breakfast, and the start of the Pedal, Paddle, Puff Triathlon. New to the Haller area, thanks to Arlington’s Rotary Club and many others, is playground equipment and turf. Those interested in being fully immersed in Arlington’s Independence Day activities can eat a pancake breakfast, bid on a unique item and get a great workout, all before noon.
