Message from the Board Chair

Hello My Fellow Chamber Members!

We are seven months into the New Year. I know I “lost” the first 3 or 4 months of the year after my accident however, I feel I am not alone when I say “Where has the time gone and how did it get to be July so quick.”?  Time really does fly!


July is the month we think of Independence, fireworks, barbeques and all things outdoors and fun, fun, fun and more fun!  This is a great time for businesses and organizations to highlight themselves and participate in the 4th of July Parade. This is such a great time and the involvement of the community is simply amazing.  What a great community to invest in!

As you enjoy the festivities please use caution, especially if you have your own firework display.  I wish you a safe and exciting 4th of July!

Here are a few “did you know” tidbits about the history of fireworks:

·         July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941

·         John Adams is the reason we celebrate Independence Day with fireworks.

·         On July 3, 1776, the day before the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, John Adams wrote a letter to his wife in which he presaged the role of fireworks in Fourth of July celebrations. “The day will be most memorable in the history of America,” he predicted. “I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade…bonfires and illuminations [a term for fireworks]…from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore.”
