Each year, Common Links of Mattoon sponsors the Lil’ Miss Firecracker and Lil’ Mr. Skyrocket fundraiser. The kids and their families collect votes in the form of pennies. All participants will be honored during a ceremony on July 3rd at the Cross County Mall. Each will receive toys and prizes. The children that collect the most will not only earn their respective titles but will also win a new bicycle and ride in the 4th of July parade. To qualify, kids must be between 4 and 6-years-old on July 4, 2018. To register or for more information, please call Dawn at 217-259-8922.
