It is so important to remind people that they are part of this wonderful community.

These shows are sponsored by the Provident Bank. “I know I’m not the only one who thinks this year’s Independence Day concert and fireworks display was a long-awaited celebration that our city needed,” Mayor Soriano said. “I want our residents to be able to share in the joys of living here and be proud of all their continued efforts to ensure their safety and that of their loved ones after a year and a half of uncertainty. We all knew that moment would come, and it’s finally here.
These shows will be presented at no cost to residents thanks to a large donation from Provident Bank, a long-time supporter of the township’s outdoor concert series. “Provident has been involved for as long as I can remember,” Plescia said.
“We can’t thank them enough for their generous support for so many years, it really made a difference.
