Refurbishing The Cherokee High School Gymnasium Floor
The Cherokee HS gymnasium floor will be completely sanded and refinished with new logos and lines. This was last done in the Fall of 2014 and was funded by John and Beth Metz. Estimates for this refurbishing are in the $22000 to $25000 range. The agreed upon goal of funds to raise are $25000.
Four Square, Inc., as a nonprofit organization, has agreed to accept the donations and will keep them in a separate checking account from all their other projects. At the end of the collection period, a check will be written from that account in the amount of the total donations, to Cherokee High School with those funds being directed to be used for the refurbishing of the Cherokee High School Gymnasium Floor. Any remaining funds will be used by the Athletic Department to upgrade the gymnasium facility. Four Square, Inc. will not receive any portion of the funds and will be obligated to release all donated funds to Cherokee High School.

2022 Rogersville Fourth of July Celebration
Dr. Blaine Jones and Mark DeWitte are at it again after retiring from the event several years ago. “Mark is covered up with his race for Hawkins County Mayor but he continues to provide as much as he can to help us raise the money needed for another big show. I just continue to make calls, send letters and shoot out emails to prospective donors in hopes of raising enough money for another spectacular event” said Jones, former Chairman of the event. “We are going to meet with Matthew Elkins the new Rogersville Parks and Recreation Director and see if we can coordinate anything else to go along with the fireworks on the 4th of July. We will probably have a DJ and a bigger sound system this year for the event as well”, he continued.
Donations are slowly coming in and much more is needed to have the size show that Rogersville, Hawkins County and the surrounding region are used to seeing on the 4th of July. Other activities may be planned for the day and will be announced as soon as they are made known. The annual Rogersville 4th of July Parade will take place through historic downtown Rogersville beginning at 11:00am. Those interested in participating in the parade should contact Parade Organizer, Melissa Nelson at
“We hope to have enough funds to pull off one of our huge shows like in the past” Jones said, “it just depends on the donations as to how large we can go”. Donations may be tax deductible as the Celebration is being organized under the Four Square, Inc. umbrella which is the 501c3 nonprofit organization Jones and DeWitte run here locally. Donations to help fund the Rogersville 4th of July Celebration fireworks and any other activities that may be arranged can be sent to the Rogersville 4th of July Celebration, P.O. Box 35, Rogersville, TN 37857. Anyone interested in being a major sponsor can contact Dr. Blaine Jones at 423-272-3150 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
