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 for the free 30-45 minute show.
Unfortunately, the Optimists have lost one of our major fund raisers and therefore will be unable to provide a firework display without the support of the community.
Contributions are needed for this fine tradition to continue. Please send a donation to North Platte Optimist Club, PO Box 491, North Platte, NE 69103.
