LETTER: Fireworks donations sought

DETAILS: To the editor:

Last week, residents of the entire Tri town area received a letter asking for donations for the Marion Fireworks Committee Fund.

We are challenged this year but encouraged by the fact that we are already receiving generous donations from people in town and elsewhere.

Fireworks are a family event and are a part of the summer time fabric of our community. It has been a tough year for everyone but with enough donations, we will all have a chance to enjoy a wonderful event on the evening of the Third of July.

Last year proved difficult on the night of the event, but fog is a part of living and celebrating along the coast also. The family atmosphere on Silvershell Beach is second to no other event we have in town during the summer and everyone attending the beach activities had an amazing time.

This year's event will be Saturday, July 3, and we are counting on everyone who can to contribute to the fireworks fund.

The letter went out to Marion and Rochester addresses April 2, and Mattapoisett was mailed this week.

We have received two large private donations already and are hoping to receive general donations quickly. We still are required to have all our money on hand to even ask companies for bids – so it all will need to move along quickly to happen.

 As always the fireworks are supported through private donations. Please send your checks o the Town of Marion, Attn: Marion Fireworks Committee, 2 Spring St., Marion, MA, 02738. Mark in the check message field: Marion Fireworks Committee.

All the best and Happy Fourth!
