Independence Day is a little more than a week away, and the Champaign County Freedom Celebration is gearing up for its festivities.
Freedom Celebration Publicity Chair Colin DeCair said the need for volunteers is still great in a lot of phases of the event.
DeCair added that after this year's celebration, the attention will go towards fundraising for next year. The annual Freedom Celebration is supported entirely by personal donations and sponsorships.
