flyover1 flyover2 flyover3

 

COMMITTEE CREATION

The Indepencence Day Celebration Committee was created by a resolution of the town board on September 9, 2019 following many years of the Independence Day celebration festivities having been planned and coordinated primarily by community volunteers and organizations. While town boards had long recognized and applauded the work of these individuals, concern over public safety during the parade caused the existing board to understand the potential personal liabilty risk of individuals coordinating the various activities throughout the day-long annual festivities.

 

COMMITTEE PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVE STATEMENT

The Independence Day Celebration Committee is established to organize, promote and safely execute the town's celebration of the recognized Independence Day of the United States of America. This committee is made up of volunteers from the following: Town Officials, St Germain Volunteer Fire Department, clubs and organizations and citizens from St Germain and the surrounding area. The celebration allows residents and visitors of all ages to enjoy a day of activities as well as clubs and organizations to raise funds for their organization by providing a service/activity for the celebration.  Activities include and are not limited to:

  • Fireworks display
  • Parade
  • Craft Show
  • Freedom 5K run
  • Food
  • Music
  • Entertainment for Children
  • Fire Department Water Fights Competition

The public and business community are invited to attend all meetings and are encouraged to suggest any additional ideas to make this celebration a success. Any person, business or organization wishing to volunteer to help and participate are also encouraged and asked to contact any committee member, or organization participating in providing a function of this committee and the celebration.
