Waconda Lake Fireworks

The Waconda Lake Fireworks Association was pleased to announce the successful funding of the fireworks display last year and we have decided to once again ask for your support of this tradition for 2015.

The Waconda Lake Fireworks Association has completed arrangements for a spectacular fireworks display at dusk (approximately 9:30 pm) on Saturday, July 4, 2015 and we are asking for your help and financial support.

This fireworks display will be enjoyed by many area residents, but it cannot be continued without donations, as our association is an all-volunteer, non-profit association.

Our fundraising goal for this fireworks display in 2015 is $9,000. This includes fees for the
professional pyrotechnics of Rainbow Fireworks, insurance, permit fees, and advertising.
Attached is a form which outlines sponsorship opportunities.

We hope you consider supporting this exciting venture and tradition.
The committee feels that the Waconda Lake Fireworks Display will benefit not only our area community members but area businesses as well.

Thank You.
Heather Johnson
Waconda Lake Fireworks Association, Chairman
S&S Drug, Office Manager
