4th of July Fireworks - Paid For Entirely By Donations!
The Steilacoom Citizens' Fireworks Committee has been collecting donations from the community for over 25 years. Without your donations, there would be no fireworks display. The show this past 4th of July is no exception and continues with the community support of private donations, 100% of which pays for the $30,000 fireworks show.
In addition to the generous donations collected door-to-door, dollar-by-dollar, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, the following sponsors have contributed $500 or more:

We Love Steilacoom Association Food Pantry
The Association operates a food bank for low-income individuals and families. Additionally, the Association provides need-based assistance for utility payments and, to the extent funds are available, scholarships for Steilacoom High School students with preference given to those attending a 2-year college or vocational school.
Food distributions are on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Steilacoom Community Church. Food donations may be dropped off at the Community Center or at the Food Bank during operating hours.
Financial contributions for any of the programs, including the scholarship program, may be dropped off at the Community Center. A separate check, made payable to the Association, may also be sent in with your utility bill.

Steilacoom's Main Street, a route through Puget Sound History - By Nancy Covert
Come Memorial Day 2014, national and state flags will ripple from the lamp posts lining Main Street that are accented with colorful, flowering baskets that remain in place until after Labor Day.
That's the way Steilacoomites celebrate the spring/summer seasons in its waterfront town, a place that once had sincere aspirations to become: state capitol, terminus for the Northern Pacific Railroad, summer resort destination, and a few other things... after it was founded in the 19th century. Tacoma, i.e., "the City of Destiny" and, later, other cities, eventually took over those roles.
Instead Steilacoom, a 2.1 square mile town, became a Bedroom Community. But that's OK with its residents, who take pride in the 160-year history that it marks this year.
This summer, while visiting the Town on the Sound, take time to enjoy its popular Farmers Market and Concerts in the Park: two of the town's most enjoyable summer activities.
Although Main St. is technically the second major arterial in the Town of Pink Flowers-Steilacoom's Main Street also is one rich in history about the first town in the state-founded 160 years ago this spring. Since this year also marks Washington State's 125th Anniversary, it's a dual opportunity to learn more about the city's role in early state history.
For those who haven't already visited Steilacoom Historical Museum on Main Street or the Steilacoom Tribal Cultural Center and Museum on Lafayette Street, consider stopping by these local repositories of community history. Both sites offer overviews about why this area was settled first in the state-160 years ago.
The steep route-3/10th of a mile, from the top of Main to the waterfront below, bypasses a community center, public safety department, Immaculate Conception Mission Church, as well as Steilacoom Historical Museum, Orr's wagon Shop, Town Hall, and terminates at the Bandstand in Pioneer Orchard Park, with a marker for the site of the town's first school, plus a spectacular view of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains.
Just around the corner from the intersection of Lafayette and Main streets, is Chambers Bay Road: the route to the 2015 USGA tournament at Chambers Bay.
Enjoy your summer-whether it's shopping at the Market or enjoying the music in the Park-very few places compare with Steilacoom.
