Atwater struggles to keep July 4th celebration alive

Atwater’s long-standing Fourth of July celebration is at risk of being eliminated because of a lack of funds. According to Greg McDaniel, event director and chairman, the committee’s budget is still reeling from last year’s low turnout. If this year’s event is not successful, it is likely that there will be no fireworks show next year, he said.
