Saugerties gears up for annual July 4 fireworks

The Kiwanis Club of Saugerties has passed the baton of coordination of the community’s Fourth of July festivities to the Saugerties Lions Club this year. Although the long-standing ceremony will go largely unchanged, the transfer is significant; after 34 years of hosting the festivities, Kiwanis members could no longer handle the event alongside their ever-growing list of community involvements.
