  • Tradition continues today with the Pinesmen providing a wide range of support to LOP 
  • We do raise funds (which take Pinesmens' volunteer effort) but the money is turned back to the community in the form of donations, improvement projects, or community activities


� FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATION---our most demanding activity of the year
    
� started as an LOP family picnic in 1986
     � 
has grown to become a $24,000 annual event
     � 
we run a raffle and arrange sponsors to help raise funds to help make the event happen
     � 
we hire the fireworks company
     � 
we arrange for and set up all the food and game booths 
     � 
hire entertainment 
     � 
coordinate the craft fair
     � 
organize the staff for all the activities from setup to tear down
     � 
generally, the Fourth of July event is a nearly break-even proposition
     � as the event grows and more funds are available, the fireworks display is upgraded along with other activities
     � 
the GOALS of the Fourth of July event are to have a fun event for the community and all our guests and to break even financially
