Rozanski is Independence Day grand marshal

Former Dublin Mayor Jan Rozanski will lead the city's Independence Day Celebration festivities as grand marshal.

Rozanski, who has been involved in community service for 36 years, will lead the annual July Fourth parade and festivities that will include a concert by Earth, Wind & Fire.

Grand marshals are chosen to recognize community members who have contributed significantly to Dublin.

Rozanski's community service in Dublin began in 1982 when he was appointed to the City Board of Zoning Appeals.

He moved on to represent Ward 2 on Dublin City Council and served as Dublin mayor from 1989 to 1993.

Rozanski has also been a volunteer coach for the Dublin Soccer League, varsity soccer coach at St. Brendan Catholic School and board member for the Dublin Soccer League.

At the Dublin Irish Festival, Rozanski is an Emerald Club volunteer.

Rozanski is also a veteran and currently works for the city as a senior zoning inspector.

The 2014 Independence Day Celebration, themed "Shining Stars and Stripes," is set for July 4 and begins with the Sherm Sheldon Fishing Derby, followed by the parade at 11 a.m.

Festivities at the Dublin Coffman High School stadium kick off at 5 p.m. and will end with fireworks at 9:50 p.m.

The ThisWeek Dublin Villager is a sponsor of the annual Dublin Independence Day Celebration.
