The American Legion Post 55 would like to say thank you to all the businesses that donated toward this year’s fireworks.

You all have a good heart when it comes to supporting events that happen in the area and we are grateful. Also, we thank the town for its donation and all those that donated when entering the rodeo grounds.

We know some will not see this as they are not from the area and/or don’t get the paper, but if you know someone that donated, please thank them for us.

We know there was a lot of congestion for those entering the rodeo grounds as the police department wanted everyone to exit one gate at the end of the display for better traffic control.

Maybe we can do things better next year, like have both main entrance and the south entrance opened to enter and only main entrance for exit. We will discuss this.

We hope everyone enjoyed the display and will show up next year. Pray we have wet weather again next year before the Fourth so we can have fireworks again.

Darryl Atherton,

Sr. Vice Commander Post 55, Buena Vista
