The following is a press release from the Monroe Playground Foundation:
The Monroe Playground Foundation takes immense pride in announcing its role as the presenting sponsor for the Town Bicentennial’s most anticipated event—the dazzling fireworks display on Friday, Aug. 4, at Wolfe Park. In case of inclement weather, the rain date for the fireworks will be Saturday, Aug. 5.
“Since its inception, the Monroe Playground Foundation has remained dedicated to fostering a strong sense of community and togetherness,” said Dan Keene, the foundation’s chairman. “From our dinner series, virtual bingo during Covid or Light Up Monroe, to the heartwarming achievement of constructing the Wolfe’s Den Playground, our mission has always revolved around bringing people together, and what better way to bring our community together than through the magic of fireworks!”
“We recognize the importance of giving back to our community and responsibly managing the contributions we received,” Vice-Chair Mike Ganino said. “We’re proud that 100-percent of donations from individuals, businesses, civic groups, and the town of Monroe have been used to bring the Wolfe’s Den Playground to life.”
“This sponsorship was made possible primarily through contributions from board members along with pie and pretzel sales, to thank the Monroe community, support the exceptional efforts of the Bicentennial Committee, and to celebrate the successful completion of the Wolfe’s Den Playground … with a resounding bang,” Ganino said.
“Go big or go home,” Keene added.
Join us as we illuminate the night sky, filling it with a symphony of colors and emotions, all in honor of the Town of Monroe’s Bicentennial Celebration. We can’t wait to see you there, as we come together once again and make this historic event truly unforgettable.
