Guilford CT Fireworks!
The 2011 Guilford Independence Day Fireworks will happen on Saturday July 9th, at 7:30pm (with a rain date of the following day, Sunday July 10th).
Thanks to the efforts of some local residents and community sponsors, the Town of Guilford CT's annual Fireworks Show will happen this year.
As we previously reported, the Town of Guilford cut the fireworks display from their budget earlier in the year. Due to a grassroots fund-raising effort, spearheaded by Guilford residents Adrian Price and Ed Bartlett, the $10,000 needed to fund this year's fireworks display were were raised.
Check out the article on Zip06 about Adrian and Ed's efforts to make this event happen.
I want to extend thanks to everyone who contributed funds to make the 2011 Fireworks Display happen. Credit goes to all the businesses who sponsored the event or provided collection boxes, and to everyone who contributed and helped make this event possible.
