Fireworks raffle

Bryan Rinker, left, and Ken Shomo, right, both of the Rebel Fireworks Association, present an American flag afghan made by Evelyn Faulkner of Warrenton, to Mr. and Mrs. Ed Blosser of Luray, center. The flag was the prize in a fundraiser the association held to pay for this year's Independence Day fireworks display on July 3 at the New Market Community Park. The group plans to raffle a second afghan of a replica of the 1776 flag. Tickets go on sale today. Courtesy photo
