Update on the Wonder Lake Patriotic Celebration

To our Wonder Lake Community friends and family,

The Wonder Lake Patriotic Celebration is an event supported entirely by volunteers and donations, with an annual budget of more than $25,000. If this were a normal year, our planning and fundraising would have been going on for months. However, 2020 is anything but normal.
