Oroville 4th of July Fireworks help

OROVILLE – The Oroville Chamber of Commerce is looking to the community to help with this year’s Fourth of July Fireworks.

In the past this community and patriotic event has been put on solely with the help of private donations and the hard work from a handful of people (mainly thanks to Dane Forrester), says the organizations. Some of those private donations are not available this year and the Oroville Chamber is sponsoring the event this year and is asking for more community support.

This is an already developed and well attended event the chamber would like to expand upon. They are working on several great additions to this year’s show, including a national anthem or patriotic song contest (the winner will perform just before the fireworks), a boat parade, expanded parking, food vendors and more. But they need more help.

Individuals or your organization would like to contribute in any way are asked to please contact Leah Palmer at 509-429-0201 or Dan Lepley at 509-560-3368. Or they can drop off donations with Peggy Shaw at Umpqua Bank.

“We appreciate your support and look forward to this fun-filled patriotic day,” said Palmer.
