|With all of us still under the "Shelter at Home" rule, all events and activities we had planned to
announce this month have been canceled. So, this month's home page update will be an abbreviated
version unfortunately. When things begin to open up, we will add the events as we receive them. We
have included a few links to things you can enjoy from the safety of your home. Send a birthday
greeting, a happy anniversary announcement or congratulate your GCHS 2020 graduate by sending us
an email. We will be glad to publish your well wishes. We are happy to announce two new
Albers Injury Law and Renown Remodeling, please take a moment to click on their banners.

GRANITE CITY STRONG
|From the Granite City Park District
On behalf of the Granite City Park District and the “Patriots In The Park” committee we regret to announce that
the 2020 “Patriots In The Park” Fireworks presentation has been cancelled. First and foremost the decision is
based on the health and safety of our community. Based on the size of the event, even if allowed, social
distancing would be impossible. Additionally, making the decision now will lessen our contractual obligation and
the financial impact on the Park District. The current situation has taken a toll financially on the Park District and
that it would be irresponsible to take such a risk at this time. We also believe that our fund raising efforts would
be difficult if not impossible. And finally with so many other local fireworks shows being cancelled, we fear that if
we proceed with the presentation we would have a significant increase in our audience putting additional strain
on our emergency services and our residents.
We are still working toward having a festival of some sort but we are unsure what that may include. We are very
proud of our festival and are grateful to our many wonderful sponsors for their years of support and looking
forward to working together.
