Yes, I will grant you the fact that with the Easter Bunny scouting out places to hide eggs it does seems a bit strange to be reading a letter that is addressing a holiday that occurs in the middle of the summer. However, planning for the annual Port Clinton Area 4th of July Celebration is a year-round activity. Raising the necessary funds to implement the events associated with this annual celebration of our nation’s birth is the primary purpose of those plans and for that matter this letter.
As in the past, the organizing committee is anticipating an overall budget of $8000-$10,000 to fund the 2013 4th of July Celebration. All funds are being held in a 501C3 account with the Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
To date, carry-over funds from 2012 activities, as well as contributions from the 2013 Port Clinton City Budget and other fund raising activities total just over forty two hundred dollars ($4200.) Well shy of our ultimate goal!
We are deeply committed to not only continuing our local annual celebration but improving on activities of the previous years. That is why we are asking the citizens of greater Port Clinton, both fulltime and seasonal, to help us with our fund raising goal.
Financial contributions may be made to the:
Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce Foundation
110 Madison Street
Port Clinton, OH 43452
A note in the memo section of the check ‘FIREWORKS’ will insure the funds are directed to the proper account.
At minimum we must let the fireworks company know our intensions no later than May 1st, 2013. Unfortunately, our current bank account falls far short of the $8000 needed for the July 4th display.
