Fireworks and Music Fest are on!
Re: “LETTERS: Fireworks only, please” [Volume 23, Issue 5]
The May 19th edition included a letter from San Carlos resident Anna Covington recommending that any funds raised for the Lake Murray Fireworks and Music Fest be put toward the fireworks display first, with a scaled back music festival. Ms. Covington’s suggestions were likely based on some misinformation in Mission Times Courier Editor At Large Doug Curlee’s April 21st story that understated our fundraising totals to date.
I’m happy to report: the 2017 event is fully funded! Thanks to neighborhood donations and corporate sponsorships, we will have a July Fourth of food, fun and music at Lake Murray Community Park, concluding with a fireworks display over Lake Murray at sundown. Thank you to everyone who contributed to bringing back this family-friendly event!
We’re pleased that so many neighbors have an interest in this event, as we hope to continue it annually and will always be in need of volunteers and donors.
