 To  whom it may concern: 

I am writing this letter on behalf of the American Hose Company fireworks committee to express our gratitude to Mike Bixler and his crew for an outstanding 4th of July Fireworks show for 2009. We have been sponsoring the fireworks in Ashland for the last 14 years with 2009 being the best show ever produced.

We were looking for change in 2009 for several reasons two of which were cost and content of the program. Mike was able to lower our operating budget and at the same time increase the quality and content of the show. Everything Mike promised us he delivered and then some, his crew went the extra mile to ensure our program would be better than ever which it was  and without a comprise to safety.

We have already booked Mike and his crew for 2010 and hope to continue doing business for years to come. If you have any questions about the fireworks feel free to contact me at 570 875 2781.


Thank You

Philip Groody


American Hose Fireworks committee


Dear Mr. Fireworks,


I want to take this time to personally thank you, American Hose Company No. 1 and its auxiliary, and JB Sound for a wonderful edition of Thunder Over Ashland. My family and I attended the event at Memorial Field and enjoyed it tremendously, from JB Sound's tunes before the show (my daughter and niece danced up a storm!) and the music Bruce provided during the display to the display itself. I think it was one of the best ones yet that Ashland has done.


The tribute to John Anczarski was beautiful and very touching. It was moving and a little chilling at the same time to see so many people stand in tribute to John as "Wind Beneath My Wings" played before the display started. I can honestly say that Saturday's event made me very proud to say that I am an Ashland area native.


I truly hope that the community realizes what a wonderful thing this event is and continues to support it for years to come.


Congratulations again on a job well done. Take care and God bless.

I want to say that Ashland Fireworks were fantastic and we all enjoyed them!

First, I must say the fireworks were wonderful in Ashland and the cause was just as wonderful.

I've been to a lot of firework shows.  This year I was at Hegins, Pottsville and Frackville.  I have to say none of them even came close to the show in Ashland.  That was a fantastic job, Ashland.  Dedicating the beginning to the young man from Ringtown was incredible.  Does anyone know who sets them off?  I'd like to personally commend them.

In response to the Ashland fireworks.  The group that put them off was Bixler's from the Valley View area.  Did you know they donated the beginning of the Ashland fireworks for that young man? I thought they did a wonderful job also.
