The Friday night fireworks display in Effingham was a hit with those who gathered at and around Effingham High School's Klosterman Field.

Thanks to Effingham firefighters who are part of Local 3084 of the International Association of Firefighters and to the City of Effingham for organizing and underwriting the display. 

Other sponsors included Effingham Knights of Columbus Council #665, Martin's IGA+, Loudon Machine, INC, Jansen's Heating and Air, Heart and Home Realty, First Mid-Illinois Bank and Trust, Bahrns Equipment, Bonutti Clinic, Frank and Anne Kabbes, and First National Bank of Dieterich.

Thanks also go out to J&M Displays, American Legion Post #120 and Auxiliary and VFW Post #1769 and Auxiliary, Effingham City Police Department Honor Guard and Effingham County Sheriff's Department Honor Guard, and Police Telecommunicator Danielle Flowers, who sang the National Anthem. 979XFM was pleased to provide the patriotic music background for the fireworks display.
