salv army cancelMADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/3/13) – The Salvation Army of Hopkins County has stated that it has been forced to cancel their annual 4th of July evening event.
 
According to Salvation Army officials, each year brings a large crowd of people enjoying the yearly fireworks show from the Salvation Army parking lot. Usually, during the event, the Salvation Army serves food and drinks to visitors. This year, however, recent weather conditions have forced officials to make a last-minute decision to cancel.
 
Officials stated that due to the massive amounts of rain that has covered the area over the past few weeks, the grounds surrounding the parking lot has retained a large amount of moisture. With this in mind, officials noted that a large amount of people usually park in the grassy area surrounding the lot after lot is full. The fear is that visitors will get hung-up in the soft and muddy grounds.
 
To avoid this risk, the Salvation Army will not be having their event this year, but does plan on resuming this annual event in 2014.
