Glenn Bunch, president of Mineral County Search & Rescue, accepts an award on behalf of all his members from Western Pytrotechnic members for SAR’s continued support of providing security during their firework convention.

Mineral County resident were treated to fireworks in September when Western Pyrotechnic Association held their annual “DO IT” convention at the Hawthorne Speedway.

Building and testing all types of fireworks, the association filled the sky with all types of colors and shapes of fireworks. Local, Dave Ferguson, once again shot off a rocket he designed on Saturday night.

The association also worked in conjunction with the 9/11 Memorial Parade, setting off fireworks before Lt. Col. Gregory Gibbons addressed those in attendance.

The association honored Glenn Bunch, Mineral County Search & Rescue president for providing securing around the perimeter and fall-out zones. Search and rescue has been volunteering their time for the past five years.

The association hopes to be back next year to test more fireworks.
