Have A Happy And Safe Fourth of July!!

with 2 comments

 

From our friend Barb Spaan, Old Brooklyn Safety Coordinator;

HI EVERYONE! MY LAST EFFORT TO CHANGE SOME MINDS ABOUT THOSE ILLEGAL FIREWORKS.  PLEASE DON’T DO IT!!!!  ENJOY NEIGHBORS & FAMILY WITH A PICNIC AND COME DOWN TO THE LAKE FRONT AND WATCH THE PROFESSIONAL ONES. WHAT EVER YOU CHOOSE TO DO BE SAFE. THE MAILING WILL GO OUT ON THURS AND FRI.  SEE YA AT THE PICNIC   BARB

 

Sounds like some good advice by a woman who cares about her community.  I have heard that the police will be arresting and/or ticketing people who are illegally shooting off fireworks.

This year is extremely troubling for our safety forces who realize how the extreme drought conditions and hot, hot temperatures can be the catalyst for make for an especially unsafe and unhappy Fourth of July.

Let’s celebrate our nation’s birthday the old fashioned way with ice cream, picnics, band concerts and fireworks if elected officials deem it safe to shoot them into the sky!

Happy Fourth of July!
