EACH YEAR SINCE THE EARLY 1980’S LAKEFRONT OWNERS AND ACCESS SITES HAVE LIT FLARES AROUND THE LAKE TO CELEBRATE THE 4TH OF JULY.
ORIGINALLY FLARE SALES FOR THE 4TH OF JULY WERE DONE BY THE UNION LAKE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT AS A FUND RAISER. AFTER THE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT WAS DEACTIVATED THESE SALES STOPPED FOR SEVERAL YEARS. SOMETIME IN THE EARLY 1980’S THE IDEA OF USING FLARE SALES AS A FUND RAISER FOR THE UNION LAKE SHORES ASSOCIATION WAS HATCHED. SINCE THAT TIME THERE HAS BEEN OVER $10,000 RAISED THROUGH THIS EVENT THAT HAS BEEN CONTRIBUTED TO THE ULSA TREASURY.
