Support the Fourth

Tuesday, June 27, 2006

Dear Editor,

The July Fourth Holiday is nearly upon us, bringing with it an event that members of your community have been diligently working on for the past 12 months.

The McCook Optimist Club would like to personally invite everyone to attend your local community fireworks display. The pyrotechnic show will be held at the Red Willow County Fairgrounds, at dusk on Tuesday July 4. We would like you to join us in the grandstands for the best seats in town, to view a wonderful aerial display by Stonebraker Fireworks, along with a prelude of your favorite patriotic music.

We look forward to a large and energetic crowd.

In the event of inclement weather, we have set our first alternative display date for the night of July 5.

The community response to this event has been so overwhelming, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

As we push on toward our financial goals for this event, we have a final couple of fund raising activities in place.

Our final benefit buffet will be held at Pizza Hut, Wednesday evening from 5:30 -- 8 p.m. A percentage of the proceeds from this buffet will be donated by Pizza Hut to our fund. Thank You Pizza Hut and their patrons for your support.

Tuesday during the display, we have recruited the assistance of an area youth organization. These young people and their sponsors will be circulating through the crowd collecting your free will donations. Please take the time to toss a little something into their bucket.

The time is growing short, and every little bit helps. Your dollars add up quickly. If you have not already, please consider our project in your giving. You can send your donations to:

McCook Optimist

P.O. Box 272

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 4th!
