The sky over Union County will be bursting with color this Friday night.  Residents and visitors will have their choice of two great fireworks shows to celebrate our nation’s independence.  The Blairsville-Union County Chamber of Commerce along with our sponsor, Woodmen offireworks the World, will host our annual display at Meeks Park.  Additionally, the town of Suches has prepared a phenomenal show to be held at Woody Gap School.  Both shows will take place on the night of July 4 beginning at dark.

As in past years, the Chamber is offering chances to win $1000 by making a $10 donation toward the fireworks display.  The winner will be drawn on the evening of July 4th following the show in Blairsville and does not have to be present to win.  Tickets are available from Chamber Board Members and at the Chamber office within the Union County Community Center at 129 Union County Recreation Road.  You may see volunteers of the Chamber at various local businesses this week as well as in town on the night of the fireworks. Please consider a donation that will ensure the continuation of this wonderful tradition.

New this year for our member businesses is an opportunity for a fireworks raffle package.  For a minimum $200 donation, member businesses will receive 20 raffle tickets, a three month banner advertisement on the Chamber website, and one e-newsletter advertisement.  Contact the Chamber for details!

The Chamber would like to say a special thanks to Woodmen of the World, a not for profit organization offering a variety of insurance and investment options, who is helping sponsor this year’s event.  We also thank the Union County Commissioner’s Office, Union County Sheriff’s Office, Union County Fire Department and Union County Recreation Department for providing event support in the form of fire and public safety, traffic control, and parking.
