Annual Stars & Stripes Salute to mark Fourth of July is Saturday in Londonderry Township

Posted

With the Fourth of July right around the corner, it’s time for the annual Stars & Stripes Salute in Londonderry Township.

The township has been holding the celebration for the past 11 years. This year, the event will be held this Saturday, June 29, at Sunset Park and Sunset Bar and Grill.

The park opens at 5 p.m.

Every year, the township donates any funds left over from the cost of putting on the event to the Lebanon VA Medical Center. Last year, $10,331.59 was donated to the hospital.

The event is filled with food, entertainment and fireworks. Active members of the military and veterans are invited for a free nine holes of golf Saturday at Sunset Golf Course, and after playing, they are invited to a free dinner at the clubhouse.

Participants can bring one guest, and are encouraged to call 717-944-5415 to reserve their spot.

After the park opens, there’s live music leading up to the fireworks, which start at 9:30 p.m. The Whiskey Brothers Band, a Southern rock band, will perform at Sunset Bar and Grill at 7 p.m., and the New Holland Band, a concert band performing patriotic tunes among others, will start performing at 8 p.m. at Sunset Park.
