Steve Kryznowek is organizing this year’s event. If you have any questions, he can be reached at 563-3723.
So please come and join us as we celebrate Jason P. Scribben’s memories and support safe boating on our Lake.
The Annual Fireworks Display will be Saturday July 6th at 10pm, weather permitting. The rain date will be July 7th. The annual display is made possible by the generous donations of our Membership and the tireless efforts of the STARS Club. The show is best viewed by boat or from the Beach 1 area.
Boaters: Please anchor your boats around the buoys (rather than down the lake) for safety and the best view of lower & sky driven displays. Try to be in place by 9:30pm/9:45pm.
**On Fireworks Night, the entire lake will be NO WAKE beginning at 8pm until dawn the following morning.**
