Fireworks fund needs spark to make goal


No new donations have come in this week for the Mineola community fireworks show on July 4.

The show will start at dark and the festivities will include a Boy Scout Flag Retirement ceremony, Lake Country Symphonic Band Concert at 8 and the fireworks set around 9 p.m. (dusk). There are plans for refreshments to be for sale at the pavilion by the Splash Park as well.

Donations are lagging for the show that is just three weeks away. “Funds are needed,” Monitor Publisher Joyce Hathcock said. Checks can be mailed to the Wood County Monitor at Post Office Box 210, Mineola, Texas, 75773.
