Laurel’s Annual Old-Fashioned Independence Day Celebration 2013

Town of Laurel welcomes you Dear Citizens and Visitors, Today we commemorate the birth of our Nation; a time when our founding fathers released an intangible power the likes of which has not been seen before. Independence, that thing which we feel so strongly, borne on the winds of change which swept over the original thirteen colonies has become the hallmark of this nation. For over two hundred years we have prospered, struggled,

suffered tragedy, fought wars, and enjoyed the fruits of great accomplishments, lasting friendships, and wonderful memories. Today is a day to celebrate that greatness, that uniqueness, and to reflect on what it takes to sustain this democracy. Today is not for partisan politics or for talking about red or blue states. Today is a day for being thankful that we are free Americans. Free to pursue “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. These words may mean different things to different people. That is okay. I believe the Nation’s founders had the faith that future generations would figure out what is best for the majority while protecting the rights of minorities.

The Celebration starts with musical entertainment by the band “Over Time” in Janosik Park the evening of July 3rd. Admission is free and food and beverages will be available. On the Fourth, enjoy the parade, the carnival with its rides and challenging games, and sample the delicacies at one of the event’s food vendors. The Bo Dickerson Band and the Elwood Band will entertain you in rousing, foot stomping fashion. At dusk you will be treated to the one of the best fireworks displays on Delmarva. Visitors – check us out! You will find why almost 4000 people are proud to call Laurel “home”. Have a great time celebrating Independence Day!

Celebrate the Fourth of July in Laurel, Delaware By Tony E. Windsor The Town of Laurel is preparing for its 19th annual Fourth of July community celebration. The holiday festival brings thousands of visitors to Laurel and helps to promote its quaint, hometown setting while helping to boost the local economy. Throughout Laurel, especially its central downtown area, visitors will find a patriotic theme accompanied by a variety of food and specialty vendors. The town has taken the leadership of the Fourth of July community event for the past few

years after the Laurel Chamber of Commerce passed the torch in favor of focusing its efforts more exclusively on helping to support and grow local business. The order of business undertaken by the town came as Mayor John Shwed led an effort to preserve the familiar tradition of the celebration, the fireworks display. The cost of the display, which hovers around $15,000, became the most cost-concerning part of the celebration. Shwed was able to gain the support of his colleagues on the council to solicit the Laurel community in helping

to pay for the fireworks. In a good-faith gesture, Shwed and the council agreed to pay for the fireworks, a detail that had to be addressed contractually far in advance of the July 4 event, out of the town budget. Thus far, public contributions placed in store canisters throughout the town have been able to cover the costs. This year appears to be no exception as financial forecasts of about a month ago found contributions have reached close to the solicitation goal. Shwed is hoping that the public will continue to donate when

they see the fireworks canisters in stores and ensure that the goal will be reached. Laurel Operations Manager, Jamie Smith, has spearheaded the coordination of the July Fourth event since the town assumed sponsorship and promises that this year’s event will be every bit as full of family-fun and variety as people have come to expect. The activities scheduled for this year’s event include: There will be a special kick-off party to be held in Janosik Park from 7 to 10 p.m., Wednesday, July 3. The event will feature music from the band “Overtime,” and admission is free. Food and beverages will be on sale during the event. On the morning of July 4, a special Prayer Breakfast will be held at the

Georgia House restaurant beginning at 7:30 a.m. The event is sponsored by the Laurel Ministerial Association. At 10 a.m. the annual July 4 parade will be held

chased the pond and surrounding farmland during the 1930s and the Civilian Conservation Corps began to develop the area for recreation. Trap Pond became one of Delaware’s first state parks in 1951. Before the pond was created, the area was home to freshwater wetlands, some of which still survive in the park. Wooden walkways allow visitors to explore the wetlands, as well as the surrounding forest. The 4.9-mile Boundary Trail circles the park’s 90-acre pond. There are also bike trails and horse trails. A treat for bird watchers, the park is home to great blue herons, owls, hummingbirds, warblers, bald eagles and pileated woodpeckers. For those who prefer a more watery experience, rowboats, pedal boats, surf bikes, canoes

Recreation in Laurel centers on water. More specifically, the waters of the Nanticoke River watershed, which are contained in the numerous ponds and creeks that flow through the area. Recreation opportunities begin at Trap Pond State Park, one of the oldest state parks in Delaware. Trap Pond, and nearby Trussum Pond, are home to the northernmost natural stand of baldcypress trees in North America. Two of the trees in that stand are the largest trees in Delaware. Forestry officials estimate the age of one of those trees to be 750 years. Trap Pond was created in the late 1700s to power a sawmill during the harvest of large baldcypress from the area. The Federal Government pur-

and kayaks are available for rental at the park. In addition, the park interpreter holds narrated pontoon boat tours on summer weekends and holidays. One of the streams that flows into Trap Pond has been marked as a wilderness canoe trail, giving another access to the swamp’s interior. A boat launching ramp can accommodate small motorized boats; anglers on the water or shore have been known to land largemouth bass, pickerel, crappie and bluegills. The park is also home to the Baldcypress Nature Center, which features a variety of displays and programs. Picnic areas overlook the pond and three pavilions may be reserved for group events. There are volleyball courts and horseshoe pits, as well as a playground and
