Crozet Fireworks Fund Update – 3 June 2011

I’m going to try to post updates every Friday. This needs to be a community effort to ensure that the fireworks happen this year, next year, the year after …

Raised so far: $2,520*

We/they need $6,500 to pay for the fireworks and about $5,000 to pay for the rest of the Fourth of July expenses.

If you can donate, please do so:

The Downtown Crozet Association, Inc., c/o The Crozet Gazette, P.O. Box 863, Crozet, Virginia 22932

* as of 1 June, 2011

Update: The Crozet Gazette has two relevant stories today:

Fireworks Canceled in Crozet

Huge thanks to WCAV for this story:

Lake Monticello and Crozet canceled their fireworks shows this year simply because they cannot afford to put them on. Crozet officials say last year the fireworks for the show cost them $6,000. And this year, their supplier said the price went up to $10,000. Officials say the price jump proved to be too much for local businesses who donate the money for the fireworks.

Personally, I am sad.

It’s a shame there was no public outreach this year for the fireworks. I have some ideas but cannot pull it off on my own … if anyone is interested in fundraising or helping in any way, please let me know.

Crozet – I’ll bet we can raise the $10k by March of 2010 … what say you?

Crozet Summerfest 2008

Thanks to Mark’s comment:

The Cozet Volunteer Fire Department Summerfest picnic will be held on July 5th. Gates open at 10am and close at 11pm. Like last year, there will be a big parade, fireworks, music (8 different bands,) games/amusements, arts and crafts, a car show, motorcycle poker run, and of course – a lot of food.
