I would think most lake area residents would agree with me in saying this year’s BLASST show were #1, once again.
Not only does this celebrate our independence as a free country, it also shows how well a community can work together to organize such an amazing event.
I’m sorry I don’t know the names of all the organizations and individuals that make this possible. I will say “THANK YOU” to everyone of them.
I also want to thank Buckeye Lake Regional Park Manager Tim Waln and all the ODNR officers for keeping the lake and parks safe. I want to thank the fire departments for their fire and EMS services during the event – Buckeye Lake Fire Department, Hebron Fire Department, Licking Township Fire Company, Richland Township Fire Department and Thorn Township/Thornville Fire Department.
Plus a big THANK YOU to Chief Rob Robertson and chief Brad Shull for their time and expertise in handling the Command/ Communications operations.
