The McLean Community Center won’t have fireworks for the Fourth of July due to public health concerns.
The community center recently announced that it plans on canceling almost all of its summer events and activities. These cancellations include McLean Day, which was set to be held this Saturday (May 16), all summer camps and the Independence Day fireworks and corresponding celebration at Langley High School, according to a press release.
“MCC has chosen to announce this decision now to allow patrons and their families the opportunity to make alternative summer plans,” the press release said.
Still, the community center plans to have things to keep people busy during this time of social distancing and staying inside.
“We will be offering, at no-cost, two- or three-day virtual activities during the time when we would have been holding camps,” George Sachs, MCC’s executive director, said in the press release.
Depending on what happens later in the summer, Sachs said that staff may reconsider hosting modified in-person camps once it is safe.
