Gilmanton Youth Organization

4th of July


at Crystal Lake Park

Every year, Gilmanton has a fireworks show at Crystal Lake Park to celebrate the 4th of July. It's not a fireworks show you'd expect from a small town - in fact, it's pretty awesome!! What you may not know is that this event is also a major GYO fundraiser.

GYO is responsible for all food and drink sales in the snack bar, as well as setting up for, and cleaning up after, the event. We need some parent volunteers to help us out with various positions during this event!

This year, we're going to sweeten the pot a bit. The first 10 people to volunteer for July 8th will receive a voucher good for 50% off any single GYO registration!
