2017 Independence Day Commission
The 2017 Independence Day Commission was created by action of the Mayor and Council of the City of Havre de Grace during their Council meeting on Tuesday, September 6, 2016. It will resemble the Havre de Grace Arts Commission in structure with a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Any members of the community who enjoy the Havre de Grace Independence Day Celebrations and wish to volunteer are welcome to join at-large.
The 2017 Independence Day Commission will be able to raise funds and receive tax deductible donations and sponsorships of the numerous activities and events that go into the celebration each year. The Commission is charged with developing the traditional events for the Havre de Grace Independence Day Celebration – the fireworks and the parade – in such a way as to continue this popular summertime celebration in perpetuity.
The previous committee is electing to dissolve their 501c3 status without election of new officers for personal reasons. To ensure planning and fundraising can continue seamlessly, the City of Havre de Grace and citizen volunteers have formed the 2017 Independence Day Commission to keep the tradition alive in the City of Havre de Grace
