On behalf of the Family Fourth Committee, I would like to thank all who supported the 38th Annual New Canaan Family Fourth Celebration at Waveny Park by purchasing an entrance pass and attending this Independence Day celebration.
The fireworks show was spectacular. It was another memorable 4th of July celebration….an outstanding evening of family fun, wonderful music, great food and a fantastic fireworks display. Your financial support makes this great New Canaan tradition possible; whether you drove in or walked in, thank you for buying an entrance pass.
We offer a big thank you to the New Canaan Family Fourth volunteer Committee (Steve Benko, Scott Cluett, Chris Cody, Wendy Dixon Fog, Win Goodrich, Suzanne Jonker, Steve Parrett, Doug Richardson and Andrew Walsh) as well as all of the following; the show could not have gone on without their endless energy, hard work and commitment:
Volunteer Ambulance Corps
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
Fire Department and Fire Marshal
Mind the Gap Band
Parking, Parks, Public Works, Recreation and Information Technology Departments
The Exchange Club of New Canaan
Master of Ceremonies Dan Taylor
Our special benefactors
The gourmet food trucks
The volunteers who worked from early morning, to very late at night, to set up and take down all of the necessary infrastructure and equipment.
A special thank you this year to Walter Stewart’s Market, the New Canaan Toy Store, Baskin-Robbins and the Town Clerk for selling entrance passes and to the local print and on-line papers for getting the word out about the event.
