“The Museum is bringing back a piece of history for the Fireworks. We will be lightening up the lake with flares again.  The flares will be sold at the Museum and along North Shore the month of June.  We encourage all shores of the Lake to participate in this unique and historic event.  The flares are lit all over the lake ½ hour before the fireworks begin. Watch for more information.”
