It really was ‘bigger
Greenville Eagles Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks
By Bob Robinson
By all accounts, the crowd was bigger than last year, possibly even
hitting the 3,000 mark judging by the wide pockets of celebrants over
the approximately 7-8 acre expanse of manicured grounds.
By all accounts, both bands were a hit. Tempest entertained hundreds
with its 60’s music in the afternoon; headliner Classified entertained
thousands… listening and dancing while waiting for dark.
By all accounts, the fireworks display was ‘bigger and badder’ than
last year, a phrase coined by Eagles Treasurer Joe Shumaker. Lasting
about the same time as the year before, huge displays literally jumped
out of the night sky. The “oohs” and “aahs” were almost continuous.
County News Online has nearly 300 photos to work through. It will take
a few days, but they depict many of the celebrants enjoying the
evening. They will be published soon in our Photos Tab.
