Letter: It takes an
New Madison Parade and Independence Celebration
Editor’s Note: See below
for additional photos of the New Madison Parade. More photos coming
soon from the Eagles and New Madison Independence Day Celebrations.
Great write-up on the New Madison Independence Day celebration! My
husband Tom is the president of the 4th of July Committee and I will
tell you, it truly takes an entire village to put this celebration
We have volunteers from the community, our local civic organization,
our fire department, Kiwanis, Masonic Lodge, local churches, etc., all
focused on making this event successful! Throughout the event we
have two cornhole tournaments, a volleyball tournament, tractor pull,
kids' games, a live concert and what we consider to be the best
fireworks display in Darke County, perhaps beyond! This is all paid for
via donations from the community and from area businesses and
individuals who advertise in our booklets and at our annual golf
tournament. WTGR also provides ads for our sponsors, as well as a
broadcast from the event.
I hope you were able to stay for the fireworks display - it is worth
the trip to New Madison just to see the crowd we bring in.
Thank you again, Bob!

Unfortunately, I was
unable to stay for the fireworks as I know I’d have enjoyed it… time
constraints and deadlines made it impossible! Bob
