Improvements still needed and to come

In February, American Legion Post 68 board member Mike Keown thought Sullivan would go without its annual Fourth of July fireworks display. With the majority of its board members replaced with new, including Keown, it wasn’t discovered until January that not only had the Legion missed its first $6,000 installment towards the display but that the Legion didn’t have the money.
“In my opinion, we weren’t going to have fireworks,” said Keown. “The Legion couldn’t pay for it upfront.”
