For years, the Optimist Club has had the privilege of providing the firework display for the July 4 celebration at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds. We rely on our fund raising activities, Christmas Tree sales, Husker season ticket raffle, etc. in order to purchase the fireworks which cost $5,000 per year for the 30-45 minute show.
Unfortunately. we have lost one of our major fund raisers and therefore, we will be unable to provide a firework display without the support of the community.
If you would like to see this tradition continued, please send a donation to North Platte Optimist Club, PO Box 491, North Platte, NE 69103.
