Lake Almanor rallies to win fireworks grant

Liberty Mutual announced today that Chester has won $10,000 for the town’s Fourth of July festivities in the company’s Bring Back the Fourth contest. In May, Liberty Mutual Insurance launched the second year of Bring Back the 4th, an online contest encouraging people across America to rally together and earn $10,000 grants to support their city's or town’s official Fourth of July celebrations.

People earned credits for their local traditions by taking the "Responsible Moments in U.S. History" quiz at BringBackThe4th.com, and encouraging friends, family and neighbors to do the same.

“We would like to thank everyone who took the time to participate, in an inspiring display of community teamwork and patriotism,” the company said in a press release.

The Lake Almanor community did indeed rally together and won one of the four awards in the small city/town category. Other winners in the category were Brockport Village, N.Y; Dahlonega, Ga.; and Springfield, Ga.
