Oak Harbor Chamber raising funds for July 4 fireworks

The Oak Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce is raising funds for their annual Independence Day Celebration.  The cost of fireworks has been increasing steadily by 5% each year, and because they would like to keep the same quality show that everyone is used to seeing in Oak Harbor, the Chamber needs to raise additional funds.  

To accomplish that, the Chamber will be selling patriotic stars that you can purchase for $1, $5, or $10 at local businesses from now until Independence Day. The stars will be displayed at the business location. Purchasers can write their name on the star to show their support. 

All funds collected will go towards the 2014 fireworks show. Everyone who purchases a $10 star will have their name entered into a drawing for VIP seating during the fireworks. On June 30, five winners will be drawn, who will each receive four VIP seats. 

Direct donations are also accepted at the Chamber office at 161 W. Water Street, Oak Harbor. For further information, call 419-898-0479.
