American Legion Coastside Fireworks
The American Legion is a service organization for Veterans and their families dedicated to patriotism and community service.
Independence Day, the 4th of July, symbolizes these elements by honoring those who serve, defend and maintain our Nationís independence, by providing an opportunity for Americans to publicly demonstrate their patriotism, and by bringing communities together with a common goal:

Develop a plan for fundraising. This may include advertising, solicitation of local businesses and individuals, placement of contribution containers, and other activities.
