Fundraising begins for fireworks show
By Brooke Pankonin
With the Fourth of July less than one month away, it’s time to begin fundraising efforts for the annual fireworks display put on by the Grant Volunteer Fire Department and sponsored by the Perkins County Chamber.
The show will follow a full day of activities at Grant City Park on Tuesday, July 4. The day’s events, hosted by the chamber, will include something for all ages. Watch for more details in upcoming issues.
The chamber is looking for sponsors for the inflatable features, which will include a bounce house, double slide and bungee basketball.
With an $8,000 budget, this year’s fireworks display will follow tradition as being one of the grandest in the region.
Donations from the community are needed to achieve that goal, and will be accepted at any bank in Grant and The Barber Pole in Grant.
Donation boxes will also be available at area chamber businesses.
Names of donors and their donations will be published in a July issue of the Tribune.
