A Redmond company has stepped to the plate to make sure Redmond holds a 4th of July fireworks display.
High Desert Aggregate and Paving has offered to fill in any funding gaps and has pledged to be the designated sponsor in the future. Redmond Mayor George Endicott made the announcement Wednesday morning on KBND's Your Town. “We're still looking for private donations. It’s very nice that a company stepped up and said they will fill in the gaps. But we're still asking citizens to try and contribute a little.” Contact the Redmond Chamber of Commerce to make a donation to the fireworks display. Earlier this week, the Chamber put out a plea that unless $3000 more was donated, there would be no 4th of July fireworks in Redmond this year.
Redmond Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Eric Sande says: “The Redmond Chamber of Commerce would like to personally thank all those who made donations to the fireworks show. And, special thanks goes to MediSISS for their generous $1750.00 contribution.
We would also like to give special recognition for the hard work and dedication from Ron Jr., Edwin and Ron Sr. Gregory for their relentless commitment, creative posters and door to door soliciting of support for this patriotic event.
It is without a doubt that we could not have been successful without the tremendous support of the Central Oregon media and their outstanding coverage of this story."
