There is a very busy weekend ahead for Lone Wolf. July 2 there will be a multiple events to honor Chief Lone Wolf’s descendants and kick off the Independence Day holiday.
Lone Wolf will also be busy this Saturday. From 7 -10 a.m. there will be a pancake breakfast by donation at the Lone Wolf Senior Center.
Organizers hope to remind visitors to buy quilt raffle tickets while at the Senior Center.
The public is invited to attend the 11 a.m. Pow Wow to begin the celebration with Chief Lone Wolf’s descendants. The Senior Center will be selling Sloppy Joes at noon, and the Methodist Church will have pulled pork sandwiches for sale at 4 p.m. There will also be live music featuring “Quick Silver” and the parade is at 6 p.m. The fireworks display will close out the festivities at dusk.
Fireworks are prohibited at Quartz Mountain Nature Park year round. Many years there is the damage of fires, although this year that is unlikely because four inches of rain fell Saturday.
Fireworks also scare the wildlife. Many new fawns are hidden while their moms browse nearby. Exploding fireworks can panic a fawn from cover. Doe and fawn could be separated, which can be very, stressful for both.
Please leave fireworks at home when visiting Quartz Mountain during this action-packed weekend.
