High Point Celebrates Fourth of July as Community
Tuesday, July 5, 2011
The residents of High Point gathered at the local ballfield to celebrate Independence Day with food, fellowship and fireworks. Marlene Snyder helped coordinate the event sponsored by the High Point Renewal Association. She said the town has been gathering at the ballfield for over 18 years.
"It is just an opportunity to celebrate America," Snyder said, "and get our community together and enjoy visiting. We have tried activities before and just have not been able to do too much. But people do enjoy coming out, sitting around talking and having the fireworks. The association does not try to make any money on this. We just about break even. It is about doing something to give back to the community."
Snyder said one of members, Doug Distler, co-owner of Capital Installers, donates the fireworks at cost. Burgers, brats, hot dogs, nachos were served along with watermelon and homemade ice cream which were both brought in as a surprise.
