Roseville is going to be a busy place next week for the Fourth of July. There is no need to leave town as we will have something for patriots of all ages to enjoy. 

Begin day with the “Run Crime out of Roseville” 5K fun run, followed by the city’s annual Fourth of July parade, which is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Riverside Avenue, Vernon Street and Douglas Boulevard. 

And finally, what would a Fourth of July be without fireworks? Join the fun at the Placer County Fairgrounds for fireworks, which begin at approximately 9:30 p.m. 

Fireworks anyone?

Speaking of fireworks, there are several local nonprofits and service clubs selling fireworks beginning Thursday. 

I would like personally invite you to purchase your fireworks from the Roseville Rotary Club. We will have a booth in front of Office Depot on Douglas Boulevard and yours truly will be selling fireworks on Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. along with fellow rotarian and city councilmember Carol Garcia.

Come support the great work Rotary does in your community.

Leadership Roseville

We had a fantastic turn out last week to honor the 27 Leadership Roseville graduates, with representation from just about all prior graduating classes, spanning back more than 16 years. 

Applications are now being accepted for the next session and are available on our website,

Leadership Roseville is designed to educate and develop effective community leaders who will help create a spirit of cooperation for the resolution of future community challenges. 

The program is designed to meet these challenges by providing a vehicle to educate future leaders about the diversity of organizations that make up our community, encourage informed individuals to serve the community in leadership roles of their choice and enhance community leadership and management skills.

The deadline to apply is July 20.

Wendy Gerig is the CEO of the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce.
