The Chamber would like to thank once again everyone who helped to make this year’s Tri-County Independence Day Blast a success! It was a wonderful fun-filled evening, and with a fantastic firework show. We would like to thank the many volunteers who gave up their day off to help out at the event and the first responders who helped to ensure the safety of everyone enjoying the celebration.
We also want to thank the many sponsors who paid for the incredible show.
