Dear Editor:

We are in need of our community’s help. The Sistersville Community Service Organization is only halfway to the annual cost of $7,450 needed for the grand fireworks display at this year’s Picnic-in-the-Park Celebration. The event date is Sunday, July 8.

This is the sixteenth year that the members of the Sistersville Community Service Organization have undertaken the task of raising funds for a patriotic fireworks display. Thanks to the wonderful people and businesses of Sistersville, all of Tyler County, and surrounding areas, for making this event an annual tradition and one in which all of us can be proud.

Contributions to the fund drive can be sent to the SCSO Fireworks Fund, P.O. Box 46, Sistersville, WV 26175, or can be made at the Tyler Star News office, located at 720 Wells St., in Sistersville.

Our organization believes that the event is an ideal time for everyone to come out and celebrate our nation’s birth, honor our area veterans, and to enjoy one another’s company.

Members of the SCSO are also encouraging any area businesses or individuals to participate in the celebration. it would be a great opportunity to have a food, game, sales or craft booths. No set-up fee is charged.

Any questions, please contact Barbara Vincent at 304-652-2939.

Thanking you for your support,

Barbara VincentCarmen Silliman
