Just 44 days to BLASST

Editor:

It’s just 44 days until our annual Buckeye Lake Area Star Spangled Tribute (BLASST) fireworks display at 10 p.m. on Tuesday, July 3.

More than 1,000 letters were mailed last week to our loyal supporters. Checks have already started coming in – some 100 or so in the past couple of days.

If you haven’t supported BLASST in the past or have recently moved to the Buckeye Lake area, we invite you to become part of this unique community fireworks show. Thanks to our beautiful setting – fireworks are shot over Buckeye Lake – and your generous contributions, we have one of the top shows in the state.

It’s truly a community show. There are no corporate sponsors nor are any government funds used to purchase fireworks. However, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and county and local entities make very substantial personnel commitments for your safety before, during and after the show. Without their participation, there would be no BLASST.

Our show to honor America and our veterans depends on your contributions. If you have misplaced your letter or want to help us this year, please make your check payable to “BLASST” and mail it to: BLASST, PO Box 475, Millersport OH 43046. Your contributions are tax deductible.

Thanks for helping keep this unique community celebration alive.

Friends of BLASST
