FLG's Fireworks Make a Big Bang Over Lake Glenville!

Saturday, July 3rd, 2021 marked FLG's 24th annual Fireworks Over Lake Glenville, and it couldn't have been a bigger success. The weather cooperated and the crowds on both land and the water thrilled at being part of this on-going tradition. 

We'd like to offer our sincerest thanks to our generous Sponsors and Contributors who help Friends of Lake Glenville make this event happen, as well as our Fireworks Committee Chairman, R. Denny Smith, who works with the fireworks company, the Cashiers Glenville Fire Department, The Pointe HOA , and Jackson County offices to co-ordinate all the details and put it together.

You can see some of the awesomeness in the video below!
