A BLASST update


OMG this spring has been wonderful here in Ohio and I am so happy to have experienced it. It was 92 degrees in the shade when I left Florida. Usually when I get home it goes from cold to high humidly 92 degrees here. I’m so happy I could dance and not sweat.

That being said I would like to tell you some BLASST news real quick. Our fireworks show will start at 10 p.m. on Wednesday July 3. T-shirts are coming back at the last minute and will only be available at Buckeye Lake Marina in Millersport. The design is beautiful and they will cost $15. We’ve been looking for a new luminary supplier, but we are not quite there yet. We will have luminaries and red bag replacements only at Buckeye Lake Marina. The best we can do at this point is $35 per kit, which consists of a 30-foot string of 10 lights with red bags. Yes, the price is up, but our former supplier now has a new owner. I’ve got to buy three sets and we’ll keep looking for a better deal for next year.

We only ordered 100 kits, so don’t give Terry a heart attack by going into the Marina at the last minute wanting them. They will go quickly for sure. While you’re there, please thank Terry for all she is doing for this community. The job sucks and she is just about crazy already AND the t-shirt or luminaries have haven’t even come in yet. I thank God everyday for finding someone to fill my shoes for this monumental job.

Terry thanks you for your checks. Please keep them coming in.
