For the City Times
Solarus has a solid record of supporting the community’s annual July 4th fireworks show in Wisconsin Rapids and the Teen Fireworks Committee.
Over the past 15 years, Solarus has donated $48,000 towards the fireworks, helping establish this community’s tradition and reputation for having one of the best 4th of July fireworks shows in Wisconsin.
Wisconsin Rapids’ Fourth of July fireworks are completely funded by contributions from area individuals, organizations, businesses and municipalities.
Since 2006, the Teen Fireworks Committee has raised the funding for this celebration and they will again collect from the crowd on the evening of July 4th to get started on fundraising for next year’s fireworks. In mid-June the teens met this year’s goal of $18,300.
