On Thursday, July 4 a group of local businesses will again sponsor the annual fireworks show in Shannon Springs Park.
The show will start about 9:15 p.m., or when it is dark.
The first show was in 1989 and was sponsored by Standley's Office Supply and assisted by Century 21 Mosley/Mosley Agency. Over time with rising cost others have assisted without a lot of public recognition. It was the intent of those businesses to say thank you to the citizens of Chickasha for being Chickasha.
This year's intent is the same but we do want to name those who participate in the cost in a more public manner. Those who will pay for this year's show are: Standley's Office Supply, Century 21 Mosley/Mosley Agency, Chickasha Bank and Trust, First National Bank, Jay's Jewelry, LaForge Properties, Cimarron Trailer, Quachita Exploration, Tom Ross, Bob Hays, Ross (Alliance) Health, Chickasha Rotary Club, Waste Connections, Ben Milam Heat and Air, Charles Allen Ford, John Holt Auto Group, Mollman Media and the Bank of Verden.
We also want to thank KWCO, The Express-Star and the Washita Valley Weekly for their news stories.
Our thanks to the City of Chickasha, the Chickasha City Council, The Chickasha Fire Department and the Chickasha Police Department. This show would not occur without their help.
