Fourth of July fireworks celebration

We are pleased to announce the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce will again take on the role of lead organization for the 2013 New Milford fireworks celebration.

The event will be held July 5, with activities on and around the Village Green, and fireworks to be displayed from Fort Hill.

Rain date would be July 6.

As a result of Lennie Lillis' hard work and guidance, there have been years of success in raising funds to put on extraordinary nights of fireworks.

Last year, we were able to continue Lennie's tradition and put on another spectacular fireworks display to celebrate our country's birthday.

The 2013 fireworks celebration will be held Friday, July 5 and we need your help.

In order to put together the display, we need to raise about $10,000.

We are asking you for your financial support of this substantial undertaking.

Every dollar donated would help.

Because of the generosity of you, our townspeople and businesses, we can keep this community event alive.

Donations can be mailed to the GNMCC, 11 Railroad St., New Milford, CT 06776.

Please make checks out to GNMCC and write "fireworks" in the memo line.
