Montello Rotary Fireworks Display

Take note!  This year’s fireworks display sponsored by Montello Rotary and made possible by very generous local businesses and individuals, will be on FRIDAY, JULY 5, AT Montello City Park.   
This year’s display will be bigger than ever, so be sure to save your spot!  Come early to the park:  the fun begins at 5:00 pm with the first annual Croquet Golf Tournament.  What is croquet golf?  Come to the park and find out!  This is free to everyone and it can be done individually or a team of four.  Scores will be kept, so get your team together now and come compete at this fun tournament. 

While you are playing croquet golf, listen to the sounds of great music provided by DJ Michael Giuffre, and as always, delicious brats, hot dogs and chips, along with refreshments will be served by Rotarians.  Remember, music, croquet golf and food all begin at 5:00 p.m.   Hope to see you there!
