Schroon Lake celebration on July 3

Paul Bubar will serve as parade announcer at the Community Church.

The Word of Life Collegians will perform patriotic music at dusk and the fireworks display over Schroon Lake will take place at dark.

Throughout the day Schroon Lake merchants will offer sales and specials.

Hutson said holding the Independence Day celebration on July 3 presented a few challenges. That same day is Canada Day and Minerva Day, so some bands and fire companies that normally come to Schroon won't be available.

"We have enough music and I'm happy with the way things are coming together," Hutson said.

The event chairwoman credited the community with making the annual celebration a reality. Financial contributions, particularly, have been strong, she said.

"People have been extremely generous," Hutson said. "I've gotten checks from summer residents in California, New Mexico, Arizona, all over. It's been wonderful."
