The NE Area Chamber of Commerce is disappointed to announce that we have come to a decision to cancel our Olde Fashioned Fourth of July event on Saturday, June 29th. After great thought and consideration we came to the realization that it would be a better allocation of resources to promote the already scheduled events of our members rather than try to host a competing event.
As parents and residents, our staff is sad to see this family friendly community event go. As professionals, we understand that an event that began as a fundraiser for community projects must actually raise funds to be considered a success. Hosting an event that would leave us in the red would not be a proper use of funds cultivated by the dues of our members.
Fortunately, there will still be a fireworks display at the Mercyhurst North East campus on July 4th at dusk. We look forward to seeing you at MNE as we celebrate Independence Day 2019!
