Chamber now halfway to goal for return of fireworks on July 4

The Taft District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce Bob Hampton of Westside Waste Management’s $5,000 sponsorship of the Taft Fireworks Show.  Hampton joins City Councilman Dave Noerr, of Huddleston Crane Service, who was first to pledge $1,000 towards bringing fireworks back to Taft.
Planning for Independence Day celebration is well underway at the Taft Chamber.

The 2013 Taft Fireworks Show presented by Westside Waste Management is being held on Wednesday, July 3 on the Rails to Trails and will feature vendors, live music, and a fireworks display.
Fireworks cannot be brought back to Taft without sponsorships and private donations from the community.

The all-community funded fireworks show has raised $7,197.14 and is still seeking donations to make this event a reality.  Individual donations and company sponsorships are available and include VIP seating, logo banners, and recognition for your company in support of the Taft Fireworks Show.  
Private donations can be made through the Chamber office or by purchasing a Tribute banner, honoring veterans and active military, to be displayed around Taft through Veteran’s Day.  Companies can support the Chamber and the Taft Fireworks show with the purchase of these banners.  Banners are designed to include pictures of honorees or a company logo for advertisement of your business.
Donation containers are located at the Taft Chamber, Vicente’s, Asian Experience, 7-11, Super Tom’s, and Chicken of Oz.  Please drop your loose change and dollars in these buckets so we may reach our goal.
WCMA with the Taft Chamber will host the 3rd annual picnic on Thursday, July 4.  This free event includes a watermelon eating contest, pie eating contest, water slides, children’s bike parade, and live music to celebrate Independence Day.  For more information, call us at 765-2165.
