July 4th Celebration
Join the City of Roswell as they sponsor the Annual Mike Satterfield Memorial Firework Extravaganza.
The City of Roswell is again sponsoring this event along with other fun family fun:
- The Roswell Sertoma Club along with the City of Roswell Fire Department, Roswell Recreation and Parks Department, Police and Streets Departments have teamed up to sponsor the Roswell Sertoma Club Michael Satterfield Memorial Fireworks Extravaganza. Mike Satterfield headed up the annual fireworks show for several years and his legacy will live on through the continuation of this project. Participants in attendance will be able to enjoy an aerial display of unprecedented proportions that is free to the public.
The Elks will sponsor their annual Veteran’s Barbeque that is being held at their lodge. The purpose is to honor our area veterans and their families and to thank them for their service. The Veteran’s dinner portion of the event will be on July 4th from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the Elks Lodge #969 located at 1720 N. Montana. This is an annual event designed to honor the “living veterans” along with the veteran’s that have left us and their families. Veterans are encouraged to stay and watch the Roswell Sertoma Club’s Mike Satterfield Fireworks Extravaganza out at Cielo Grande Recreation Area. For more information on the Veteran’s Barbeque please contact Elks Lodge at 622-1560.
The Roswell Sertoma Club Mike Satterfield Fireworks Extravaganza provides residents with a safe alternative to the possible injuries sustained by shooting off personal fireworks. The sponsors of the event are committed to providing an event that improves the quality of life for the residents of Chaves County. Mike Satterfield headed up the annual fireworks show for several years and his legacy will live on through the continuation of this project. Participants in attendance will be able to enjoy an aerial display of unprecedented proportions that is free to the public. The show is set off electronically as opposed to someone physically igniting each launching device. It will be choreographed to patriotic music and the fireworks extravaganza is expected to be even more dazzling than last year’s event. The show expected to last 30 minutes and organizers would like to remind everyone that College Street will be closed during the fireworks show. To avoid parking complications please arrive early and bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on.
