The success of the city of Groveland’s 4th of July celebration is still echoing throughout the community. This summer’s event set an attendance record and also provided an opportunity for three local nonprofit groups to receive financial donations, a news release states.

The City Council and representatives from the event co-sponsor, Lake Catherine Blueberries, presented checks for $1,419 each to FAITH Neighborhood Center, Groveland Police Explorers Post 910, and South Lake Dixie Youth Baseball at a recent council meeting.

The $4,257 total came from net profits from the Star-Spangled Spectacular 4th of July event, which included many activities, six bands, and a dueling fireworks display.
