Funds needed for fire­works

The Free Press (Corowa) - - NEWS - BY SARAH DEAN

As the end of the year draws near, res­i­dents are be­ing en­cour­aged to dig deep for the com­mu­nity funded fire­works dis­play on New Year’s Eve.

The Ro­tary Club of Corowa is again co-or­di­nat­ing the fund­ing and has col­lec­tion tins at lo­cal busi­nesses and at its monthly mar­ket in Bangerang Park.

Chair­man of the Fire­works Com­mit­tee Paul Miegel said it was that time of year again when fund-rais­ing for the spe­cial event needed to be ramped up.

“For the fire­works to con­tinue to hap­pen, it is im­per­a­tive that lo­cal busi­nesses and the com­mu­nity in gen­eral get be­hind it,” he said.

“Res­i­dents and busi­nesses alike have been sup­port­ive in the past and we thank them for this.”

The last two years have seen great fire­works dis­plays on John Fo­ord Oval, with the chil­dren’s fire­works dis­play from 9.30pm and the main event at mid­night.

Feed­back from the past two shows has been pos­i­tive, with one vis­i­tor from Syd­ney say­ing they will be back next year.

The dis­plays for the past two years have oc­curred be­cause of three sig­nif­i­cant spon­sors in Ricky D’s Pizza, who is again on board with a $5000 do­na­tion, Corowa RSL Club and Ri­valea who have spon­sored the chil­dren’s dis­plays.

Do­na­tions can also be made di­rectly into the Ro­tary Club’s Fire­works Ac­count - BSB: 082-559 Ac­count No: 246378185, or by cheque made payable to Ro­tary Club of Corowa Fire­works and mailed to P.O. Box 153 Corowa, or at the front counter of the Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil of­fices, where a re­ceipt from the club will be is­sued.

Busi­nesses mak­ing do­na­tions of $500 or more will be listed on the do­na­tions me­ter at the bot­tom of Sanger Street and thanked in the Free Press and in­di­vid­u­als do­nat­ing $100 or more will also re­ceive the same recog­ni­tion.

Busi­nesses with fire­works col­lec­tion tins in­clude; The Guy Street store, Sul­tans Turk­ish Restau­rant, Green Bean Cafe, Civic Cafe, Corowa Newsagent, The Aus­tralia Ho­tel, Meat on the Mur­ray Butcher, Gourmet Butcher, Corowa Take­away, Ricki D’s Pizza, Corowa Fur­ni­ture, Wah­gun­yah Store and Fuel, Corowa Bak­ery, Corowa Ho­tel, Corowa Chi­nese, New­mar­ket Ho­tel, Em­pire Ho­tel, Am­ber Rose, South Corowa Store, Tourist In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre, Corowa Choco­late and Whisky Fac­tory, Corowa Dry Clean­ers, Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil Of­fice (front desk) and Corowa Fur­nish­ings and Floors.
