A pair of community organizations have joined hands this year to keep the annual Loch Raven July 4 fireworks tradition alive, but like others who have organized the annual event, the groups are in need of helping hands and generous donors to ensure the event succeeds and continues.
Until this year, the Associates of Loch Raven Village, a community group, coordinated the show. The display has capped off Independence Day celebrations in the Towson area for more than 50 years. Facing pressures of finances and limited resources, members of the ALRV voted to discontinue the group’s sponsorship after last year’s event. Picking where the ALRV left off, the Greater Loch Raven Recreational Council and the Greater Towson Council of Community Associations (GTCCA) are combining efforts to organize this year’s display.
