Marion Advancement Campaign opened its fireworks stand Tuesday morning at 162 Main, Marion. Committee members will take turns manning the stand and it will remain open through July 5. All proceeds from the fireworks stand go to MAC, which is a non-profit organization that invests in the future of Marion.
