There is exciting news for the citizens of Marietta and surrounding communities! On Saturday, June 30th (rain date of July 7th) the popular Marietta fireworks will return, bigger and better than ever before! Over the past year, a group of Marietta residents, under the leadership of Gary Schatz, has been working to organize the funding, fireworks, and a patriotic program that will precede the actual fireworks. The fireworks display has been ordered and will be launched from the Donegal Intermediate School. The display will include an opening barrage of variegated shells, a main body of 3 inch, 4 inch, and 5 inch shells, and a grand finale of assorted color, crackling, mine, palms, strobes, tiger tail, and salute shells. The program is possible due to the donations of many area businesses, organizations and individuals, but more funding is needed. One of many ways to contribute is to access the GoFundMe. com page at “Bring Back Marietta, Pa Fireworks!” To volunteer to assist with the event, contact Gary Schatz at 717-653-0216.
