  1. The big fireworks display at Parkway Marina is actually a fundraiser for the Saunders Vol. Fire Co.
    Its a great show, enjoyed by thousands of people each year. If you can’t attend the event at the marina, the fire co is requesting donations to help keep the event going. Check out to donate.

    Jim, thanks for pointing that out. I made sure that was noted in the main blog about the fireworks. (See June 28th post)
