Donation jars

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 difference.
