And Ephrata is once again blessed with a free fireworks show, thanks to the generosity of several community sponsors (listed in ad on page A-11).

The show begins at 9:30 p.m. and parking is available at the Ephrata Rec Center, middle school and high school. Rain date is Thursday, July 5

The fireworks are coordinated by the Ephrata Recreation Center and Executive Director Jim Summers said they are still in need of funds for the show.
