I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
My thanks to the folks at Emmanuel Community United Methodist church for putting on a spectacular fireworks display on Christmas Eve.
Neighbors from blocks around converged on the Thomas Jefferson School soccer field to watch a brilliant display of Bartalotta fireworks.
For everyone other that church members I'm sure this program was a total surprise. My family and I were about to start dinner festivities when the first booms sounded. We all enjoyed the glorious sights and sounds normally assocoated with summer.
The half hour show held our neighborhood in awe and brought a joyful start to the Christmas holiday.
