Sad to see how few people enjoying the fireworks contributed to the bucket
EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a letter to the Little Current Lions Club and its volunteers and has been reprinted here at the author’s request.
To all Lions members and volunteers for Haweater Weekend:
Congratulations on a memorable 50th Haweater: Our family found everything great. The highlights for us were the parade and fantastic fireworks display. The highlights for our grandchildren (age 2 and 3) were Bouncy Land and the Ultimutts show plus the above.
When we were downtown on Sunday and you were going through the crowd for donations towards fireworks, I was greatly disturbed on how many people said ‘no’ or walked away. Probably 80-90 percent of the downtown crowd only took part in the fireworks portion of Haw. So with this in mind, we would like to contribute $100 to either this year’s fireworks or next.
Thank you all so much for keeping traditions alive.
