The night sky filled with colorful explosions is a beautiful thing to celebrate the Independence Day holiday – however, it’s a sight that is not to cheap to pull off.
For the last several years, Thomas Reische has been solely responsible for the campaign and fundraising efforts for Colusa’s annual fireworks display. With the event well underway, Reische commented that the committee still needs public donations to meet its $12,000 goal.
“The Rotary Club and Recology have donated $3,000 each,” said Reische, “however we are still far away from meeting our goal.”
Reische is optimistic as traditionally donations arrive at the last minute, but keeping the word out, and making a donation is a sure way to keep the tradition going.
“The Colusa Firefighters Association has kindly allowed us to utilize their organization for donation purposes, and all donations are tax-deductible,” said Reische.
To make a donation, make your checks payable to the Colusa Firefighters Association and mail them to 750 Market Street, Colusa. Remember to add 4th of July Fireworks Show in the Memo.
“I would like to thank everyone for their support and their generous contributions,” said Reische, “together we can provide another great fireworks show and to allow Colusa to be one of the few remaining communities hosting a Fourth of July Celebration in honor of our Nation’s Independence.”
The Colusa 4th of July Fireworks Show is held each year at the Colusa Riverfront Park, located on Main Street at approximately 9:45 PM.
