July 5 was a magical night for Roselle

Friday, July 5 was a magical night in Roselle. Through the efforts of individual residents (some children), businesses and the not-for-profit organization, For the 10, fireworks were back in Roselle. As usual, the Mad Bomber, (love that name), gave us an over the top display that delighted the crowd.


The fireworks were preceded by a wonderful concert from American English, the well-known Beatles cover band. From my former reporting days, I estimated the crowd at 2,500 -- from infants to seniors -- all enjoying the spirit of community that makes Roselle the special place it is. Many people worked to make this possible.

Thanks you to all who contributed to our fireworks fund, the volunteers at Mission Church, who contributed toward the fireworks and donated the band and our legion of volunteers: Volunteers in Policing, Explorers, EMA's who helped with the crowds and traffic control. Both Lake Park High School District 108 and the Roselle Park District helped the village make this event possible. A special thank-you to Maryann Grygiel and BSA 408 who volunteered to clean up the high school site the day after. This event showcased what Roselle is all about: community, family and volunteerism. I am proud to serve as its mayor.

Mayor Gayle A. Smolinski
