Funds needed for Enderby fireworks

Fire department is planning for Canada Day fireworks

Canada Day could be a real blast in Enderby this year.

The Enderby Fire Department is planning a fireworks display July 1 after an absence of six years.

“A lot of people are asking for them,” said Kevin Alstad, fire chief.

“And with this being 150 years for the country, we want to get them back into Enderby.”

However, fireworks don’t come cheap.

It’s believed a 20-minute show will cost about $10,000.

As a result, the department has launched a fundraising drive and donation tins are located in a number of businesses.

“We are looking for community support. We’re getting a positive response,” said Alstad.

Grants are also being pursued as are corporate sponsors.
