ORTONVILLE - Throughout the last year, CDC and Michigan guidelines have changed almost daily, and once again we find ourselves in a situation where these ever-changing guidelines have shifted life. With the Governor’s announcement last Thursday morning, the Friends of AMOS, DDA, School District, Fire Department and Sheriff’s Office met once again to discuss the potential of hosting the fireworks. At this time, all signs say “yes” so now we need your help. This year’s event will be fireworks only and will take place at dusk on Friday July 2, 2021. As stated above, things have been changing almost daily, so if covid restrictions from the state or county cause interference to the July 2021 show, our goal will be to use the funds collected for a firework’s show at a later date. Normally, our committee and volunteers have between 2-3 months to raise funds for our community Fireworks and Food Trucks Festival. The fee for the fireworks display alone is $12,000. Due to the uncertainty this year, we have been unable to perform our normal fundraising activities, so we are asking the community to step up to the plate and help us fund this year’s fireworks show.
There are 3 ways to donate:
GoFundMe: 2021 Ortonville Fireworks GoFundMe <https://www.gofundme.com/f/ortonville-2021-fireworks...>
PayPal: PayPal for 2021 Ortonville Fireworks <https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=PZ8P7J7YSJ4HL>
Check/Cash Made payable to: Friends of AMOS, P.O.Box 84, Ortonville MI 48442 or dropped off in the Ortonville Village Offices.
Any amount collected over the cost of this year’s display will be placed in the fireworks account and be put toward next year's fireworks show. Please spread the word and help us raise funds for the 2021 show by donating and asking your friends to donate as well. Once again, without your help this year, we might have the green light from the state, but we won’t have the funds necessary to put on a show to celebrate our freedom.
