Chamber “Stars and Jars” Raising Funds for 4th of July Fireworks

May 19th, 2014
– Shoppers and community members are invited to help the New Rockford Chamber of Commerce sustain the annual 4th of July fireworks display through the “Stars and Jars” donation campaign. The fireworks show, paid for by the Chamber and managed by the New Rockford Fire Department, draws a sizeable crowd every year, and is a cornerstone of the 4th of July celebration.

Anyone and everyone can be a “Star” supporter of the fireworks display by purchasing a Star at Miller’s Fresh Foods or Baker’s Dozen. The Star slips are available in $2, $5, and $10 amounts, and feature the amount given and the donor’s name. The purchased Stars will be displayed in the two businesses to showcase individual and community support for the annual fireworks show.

Another easy way to show your support is by dropping your change or bills in the “Jars”, cash donation jars marked with flashy patriotic pinwheels. These fireworks fundraiser Jars will be hosted at eleven Chamber of Commerce businesses.

The 4th of July fireworks show is a treasured part of the New Rockford-Sheyenne 4th of July celebration, popular with locals and visitors of all ages. The cost of purchasing the fireworks and maintaining compliance with safety regulations has increased over recent years, leading the Chamber to step up fundraising efforts to keep the tradition alive.

Individuals or businesses are always welcome to directly donate to support the event by speaking with any Chamber board member. The event is always free to spectators.
