Area non-profit plans fireworks show

REGIONAL NON-PROFIT NEWS | Normandy — The Arrowhead Boys Ranch in Bedford County plans a fundraising fireworks show on Saturday, July 3. The event will feature a live fireworks show, hotdogs, live music by Vintage Vibe, and more for a $10 per person entry fee. All children under 10 years old may attend for free.

“We are proud to celebrate our Independence Day at the ranch. One of our primary goals for the boys is to teach them how to become independent men. If you’ve been to the ranch before we look forward to seeing you again, if you haven’t please let us know and we will give you a tour,” said Director and Co-founder Jeff Sweeney.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go directly to expenses such as housing, counseling, food, health care, transportation and activities for the boys at Arrowhead Ranch. The Arrowhead Boys Ranch is a non-profit, long term residential care facility for boys ages 10-18 years old that are dealing with conflict and misguided direction in their lives. While at the ranch, the boys learn the importance of hard work and team building while in a Christian family environment. Arrowhead Ranch’s goal is to instill hope and a sense of purpose into the boys as they grow into young men.

The event will take place at around 7 p.m. and fireworks begin when the sun goes down. Arrowhead Ranch is located at 239 Cortner Mill Road in Normandy. To learn more about the Arrowhead Boys Ranch, visit their website. •
