The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce will again take on the role of lead organization for New Milford's Fourth of July fireworks celebration.

The event will be held July 5. A rain date of July 6 is planned.

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

Last year, the chamber took over the coordination of the fireworks display.

This year, the chamber is seeking to raise about $10,000.

Donations, made payable to the GNMCC with a memo "fireworks," can be mailed to GNMCC, 11 Railroad St., New Milford, CT 06776.
