I am putting out jars and possibly cans for citizen
donations to pay for the 4th of July fireworks display. This is free to the
public and is something that we need to continue.
Since we have banned all fireworks except this display, the
amount of injuries, property damage and litter on our streets has dropped to
almost zero. This has saved every citizen money.
The display is a tradition to which most everyone has grown
up with as part of the 4th of July, but it has a price tag. I am asking the
citizens to come together to donate to make sure that it continues to be our
tradition here in Sunnyside.
The VFW, AM Vets, Lions and Chamber of Commerce have stepped
forward to say they will support it, and I say that the citizens can also step
up to donate their support. I believe in the citizens of Sunnyside. Let's show
unity in Sunnyside. Look for those jars and give your change. We can make a
