Community leaders, business owners, pastors step up for Lawncrest’s 4th of July dunk tank

For $1, you’ll get three chances to dunk one of a dozen Lawncrest community leaders into a tub of water. Business owners, rec center coaches, pastors and more have volunteered for stints in the dunk tank, part of Lawncrest’s 97th annual Fourth of July celebration.
