Fourth of July Committee Busy Planning for Next Year

By Fourth of July Committee

We’ve been busy bees working hard on next year’s celebration. New bands, new kids games and other surprises are in the works!

Go out to our Facebook page and suggest a parade theme. If you are not an internet user, stop at the Town Office and leave your theme suggestions there.

“It takes a village” certainly rings true for our Andover Fourth of July celebration. This is the one time all of Andover's non profits come together to promote their good causes. With a population of less than 3,000, our Patriotism displayed is ten times that!

Let's not forget that the underlying purpose of this celebration is to commemorate our nation’s independence and all those who gave their lives to keep us free!

An event of this size requires both dedication and financial resources. This year our expenses were as follows:

Publishing     $4,941

The Green (Activities etc)  3,559

Parade Expenses   6,040

Fireworks     8,000

Misc.      873

    ———–

Total.    $23,413

The generous support of our community has enabled us to continue Andover's largest event for 75 years! Thank you all!

Our committee meets every first Wednesday of the month at the Andover Fire Station at 7 PM. Please join us! New faces are always welcome. You don't have to be a member!
