Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Karen Johns, Phoenixville will once again host a fireworks display to celebrate the 4th of July. From today's Phoenixville Patch:
Michael Maurice O'Shaughnessy has the Golden Gate Bridge. Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower.
Karen Johns has the Phoenixville Fourth of July Fireworks Show.
For the second-consecutive year since the borough pulled funding, the former council member has raised the $14,000 necessary to finance the annual pyrotechnic spectacle the downtown has hosted since 1999. Though it hasn’t always been easy–the 2012 show wasn’t clinched until Johns was presented with a $2,500 check by Susquehanna Bank during the June 12 meeting of the borough council–Johns has ensured the tradition lives on.
Phoenixville's Annual Fourth of July Fireworks event will be held on Wednesday July 04, 2012 at Friendship Field, located at the corner of Fillmore Street and Franklin Avenue, from 9 p.m. to 9:15. Visitors may park in the lot behind the reservior at Reservior Park, Franklin Commons, or the Santa Anna Club and at the Bethel Baptist Church on Fairview Street. Refreshments will be available, but alcohol, drugs, and pets are not permitted.
Thanks to Karen for all of her hard work!
