2023 Hamlin Lake July 4th fireworks canceled

 Funds being raised for 2024 display

HAMLIN, VICTORY, GRANT TOWNSHIPS — Hamlin Lake Preservation Society Board of Directors has cancelled its 2023 Fourth of July fireworks over Upper Hamlin Lake due to lack of sufficient donations to cover the cost.

HLPS will continue to raise funds and reassess the type of fireworks program offered for 2024.

“While nearly everyone is disappointed that there won’t be fireworks over Upper Hamlin Lake this Independence Day, it provides the opportunity to establish a more solid fundraising system and look at more cost-effective fireworks options.  I look forward to a nice show in 2024,” Steve Brock, HLPS fireworks chairman said.

HLPS President Peggy Haverberg, added, “Although 2023 Fireworks have been cancelled the money donated to date will remain in the fireworks fund while interested parties work with the HLPS board members to raise necessary funds for 2024. In addition to raising more money, the fireworks team is also trying to find more cost-effective solutions, ensuring, 2023 was a momentary pause in a long-standing tradition.

In order to secure the Fourth of July fireworks for 2024, funds needed must be secured by Jan. 1, 2024.
