We are close to the goal, but are still in need of donations for the July 4th celebration. Every little bit helps. Please donate, if you can.

Dear Friends & Neighbors,
Each year people from all over Ohio converge on Ostrander to celebrate our nation’s birthday. It is amazing and gratifying to see our small village fill with over 10,000 people who come each and every year to participate in our 4th of July parade and stay to enjoy the fireworks. It is due only to the hard work and generosity of the wonderful members of our community like you, that this annual event takes place. Without your support we could not begin to make it all happen.
Last year we were able to raise the money needed for the fireworks in record time and we hope to be able to do that again. Our goal for 2014 is $20,000 which will cover the cost of the fireworks, parade, and activity expenses.
As in the past, donations from the local residents and businesses are what fund the bulk of this wonderful, uniquely American celebration and make it such a huge success. Please make your check payable to the Ostrander 4th of July Committee and kindly send in your donation by June 26, 2014. The address is PO Box 185, Ostrander, OH 43061-0185.
Please know too, that the 4th of July Committee is now meeting on a regular basis to plan this year’s program of events and we welcome ideas and suggestions that will help us reach our goal of making 2014 even better than last year.
Sincerely (and with excitement),
Harla L. Lawson
Ostrander 4th of July Committee Treasurer
