Dear Friend of CHARIAD:

I just got word that the Marblehead July 4th Fireworks – scheduled for tonight July 5th – has been cancelled. The tug pulling the barge from Boston is still confused about what day is July 4th. Perhaps the extra pint at the Black Rose had something to do with the confusion.

The CHARIAD BBQ is still on. And Marblehead’s beautiful harbor illumination is still on.

We never lack for creative entertainment. This will be the night for each of us to come with our best stories, costumes, bells and whistles, etc.

Tonight will be a beautiful evening on the water. Come to have some laughs with great folks.

Hope to see you.
