Shelbyville has 4th of July events planned all over the town, and the Chamber of Commerce is in charge of one of the event areas. Vonda McConnell, CEO of the Greater Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce, said that there aren't as many events planned this year as there would be when the Fourth falls on the weekend, but there is still enough to enjoy and make the holiday a fun one.
McConnell praised the local businesses of Shelbyville because for many years they have funded the fireworks show for Independence Day by donating money. She also said the Chamber will be taking donations all day throughout the event.
The Chamber sponsored events will be taking place at West Dam on Monday. McConnell recently appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
