To Citizens of Amherst and friends of the Fireworks

The Amherst 4th of July Celebration is a time-honored tradition where the community comes together as one to mark the birth of the nation. At this quintessential New England affair, Amherst citizens enjoy fireworks and family-oriented activities along with a traditional old-time parade on July 4th. These events are brought to all by the Amherst Fourth of July Committee, a 501 (c)3 town committee and through the generosity of local businesses, groups, families, and individuals who help bring the celebration to life.

While the town of Amherst provides the committee with a stipend for the celebration, it falls to the 4th of July Committee to raise the remaining funds necessary to hold this event. This year the committee is doing a Calendar Raffle to raise funds for the fireworks. The fireworks celebration will be on June 30th at Souhegan High School.

We are asking you to buy a ticket for our June Calendar Raffle. Here is how that works? From now until May 30th we will be selling tickets for the raffle.

For each $10.00 ticket you buy you will have a chance to win money every day in June. All tickets are put in the pot and each day we will draw 1 winner. We are limiting the number of tickets sold to 700. Prizes range from a minimum of $25.00 to a maximum of $200.00. It's easy to play and your odds are good. Everybody who buys a ticket is already a winner because your donation helps our town keep the fireworks celebration going.

There are 3 ways to buy your ticket:

Dima Wilkes of BSA Troop 22, as a portion of his eagle scout project, designed and built an eyeglass collection box to be placed at the Town of Amherst’s transfer station.  He also setup collection centers at our local schools and library and posted information to increase public awareness of the importance of recycling eyeglasses. He collected almost 400 pairs of glasses.

The glasses are taken to be cleaned and polished and sent to those who can’t afford them all over the world.  Demi carefully listened to our needs for a strong, long lasting, and convenient container to collect eyeglasses at the recycling section at the transfer Station.  We couldn’t be prouder of the job he did.
