The St. Marys fireworks display will be held at dusk on July 3 at the Leaning Pines/The Highlands, with live music from 7 – 9 PM, children’s activities, snack vendors, and more! As always, the display is entirely funded by the community’s generosity. The 2017 Fireworks Fund is underway and we know with your support we’ll once again reach our $18,000 goal! Several levels of sponsorship are available, and fireworks donations of any size (from organizations, businesses, and individuals) are welcome!
