WESTPORT -Westport kicked off its Buy a Boom!, fireworks fundraising campaign with checks and pledges amounting to $500 at the recent Westport Chamber of Commerce meeting at Camp Dudley. The Camp followed the meeting with a business-after-hours reception for Westport businesses and guests.
The fireworks show is scheduled for Saturday, July 2 at the Lee Park lakeshore property by the treatment plant, where the land is higher, and even now, not flooded. Sunday, July 3 is the designated rain date. A goal of $3,500 is set for the campaign. Collection containers are located at four businesses: Ernie's, Everybodys, Me and My Girls Caf , and the Westport Branch of the Champlain National Bank or donations may be mailed. Checks are payable to the Westport Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box. 394, Westport, NY 12993. Please write "Fireworks" on the check.
Names of contributors will be posted next to a money-marker rocket on the Dragon Press Bookstore windows owned by Kathryn Cramer and her husband David Hartwell.
