When we think of the 4th of July, most often we have memories and traditions surrounded by food, family, and fireworks. It has been several years since our community has enjoyed gathering for an annual fireworks display. This year, however, a group of individuals have come together as the Uxbridge 4th of July Celebration Committee to bring back this annual tradition and to make new memories.
Their ambitious goal is to hold a fireworks display, tentatively scheduled for Friday, June 27, 2014 to kick off the holiday week. To accomplish this and to fund other events for the Celebration, the Committee has set a fundraising goal of $50,000. To commit to having the fireworks portion of the Celebration this year, we must reach this goal by April 30, 2014. In the event that the goal is not reached by April 30th, fundraising will continue year round with the fireworks display beginning in 2015.
In order to reach this goal for 2014, your support is needed. Donations can be made by mail to: Uxbridge 4th of July Celebration, c/o Amie Briggs, Treasurer, 502 W. Hartford Ave., Uxbridge, MA 01569. Please make checks payable to: Uxbridge 4th of July Celebration. On-line donations may be made at the website www.uxy4thofjuly.com. Donations for raffles, fundraisers, goods and services are welcome.
Corporate/Business Sponsorships are available. Show your support to the community that helps to support your business and consider becoming an annual sponsor.
There are volunteer positions open on the Committee and Sub-Committees where you can donate your time and help to make this Celebration a reality.
