Fourth of July Family FunFest

Saturday, July 4th – Festivities begin at 6:00 PM

Every 4th of July, hundreds of neighbors, and community members gather on the hill behind the Scout Service Center for the best view of the fireworks. This year the Council is hosting a 4th of July Family FunFest from 6-8 pm. It is an opportunity to showcase the fun of Scouting and thank the community for their generous support of our popcorn sale and Friends of Scouting campaign.

The attached poster lists the schedule for the evening including the retirement of a large American Flag, singing of the national anthem and a fire dancing performance by the group ‘Pyrotechnica’. We invite you to bring your family and friends to enjoy a fun and patriotic evening.
