Melcher-Dallas Coal Miners’ Day is June 27


Many of the activities associated with Melcher-Dallas’s 2020 Coal Miners’ Day have been altered due to COVID-19, but there will be activities.

The Lions Club will hold a craft and bake sale outside the community center. This is part of an ongoing fundraiser to continue to improve the building. Look for more on the renovations in the July 3 Marion County Express.

A parade will be held downtown at 7 p.m. and fireworks will be set off at dusk. Fireworks will be shot off from the football field; no one will be allowed access inside the gates.

The golf tournament is still on Sunday from 8-10 a.m., followed by a pulled pork meal.

Don’t forget that Melcher-Dallas High School’s graduation will be held Sunday, June 28, at 2 p.m., also at the football field.
