Progress Made on Onset Fireworks Fundraising

WAREHAM – After a silent 4th of July last summer, efforts are well underway to revive the Independence Day fireworks display in Onset.

Last summer’s show was cancelled due to a lack of funding, but the Onset Bay Association reports that over $28,000 has already been raised for a display this year.

President of the Association Kat Jones said that they still need $12,000 more to meet the required $44,000 it takes to put on the show.

“The community has spoken; they’re talking with their donations,” she said.

Jones said she is “75 percent sure” of a fireworks display in 2017.

The Association raised over $14,000 in one evening in October with a fundraiser at a nearby restaurant.

Jones said that, on top of monetary donations, a fireworks show will require dedicated volunteers.

Meetings will take place on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. and the third Friday of each month at 9 a.m., both at 4 Union Avenue in Onset.
