Dig deep for community funded fireworks display

August 10, 2017

Corowa Rotary Club’s Gail Law rattling a collection tin as residents are called on to donate for the 2018 community funded fireworks display.

It may seem a little early, but before you know it we will be seeing in 2018.

The Rotary Club of Corowa is again co-ordinating the funding of this event and will have collection tins at local businesses and at its monthly market in Bangerang Park.
Also, donations can 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 PO Box 153 Corowa, or at the front counter of the Federation Council offices, where a receipt from the club will be issued.
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 the 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.
For the fireworks to continue to happen, it is imperative that local businesses and the community in general get behind it.
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.
A video of the fireworks can be found on Facebook/Corowa NYE Fireworks.
