The Rotary Club of Big Bear Lake July 4th BBQ Committee and membership are grateful for another successful Independence Day at Big Bear Lake, California.  July 4, 2017 marks the 40th Anniversary of the Rotary Club of Big Bear Lake July 4th BBQ Event that has delighted thousands over those years.

The BBQ Dinners are served in the large white tent at the Marina Resort on Big Bear Lake shoreline. The BBQ Dinners of  Baby-back Ribs, Garlic-lime Chicken, Black Angus Tri-tip Sandwich, Notti-Burgers and Notti-Hot Dogs, with a wide selection of non and alcoholic beverages are the luscious treats to the beginning of the evening’s spectacular 4th of July Fireworks on Big Bear Lake.   

Big Bear Valley families, businesses, organizations and visitors have contributed to the annual fundraisers; some by purchasing individual dinner tickets and others by generous donations. Big Bear Valley is a community known for its unconditional giving to those of special needs.    

All funds from the Rotary Club of Big Bear Lake July 4th BBQ fundraiser make community projects possible such as:  Scholarships ($18,300 this year), Santa Claus visits (520 visits in December 2016), Senior Citizen Holiday Luncheon (500+ served in December 2016), Dental Screening (for 500 + elementary students), Interact (grades 7-12) Leadership programs, Big Bear’s Got Talent ($1,200 awarded to Performing Arts students). 

Rotary Club of Big Bear Lake says “THANK!” Enjoy the 4th!
