Fredericktown Fireworks 2018

The Fredericktown Area Optimist Club would like to invite you to be a partner in Madison County’s Bicentennial 4th of July Firework display and celebration.  Together with the City of Fredericktown and the Madison County Chamber of Commerce, the club will pursue this project in 2018 to be held at Rotary Park with a funding goal of $5,000.  The event is scheduled for Wednesday, July 4th but cannot happen without support from the community. 

While developing your 2018 charitable giving, please consider this project with the knowledge that your donations will be matched with hours of community service, bringing together our community to advance the well-being of youth and of Madison County as a whole.  All monetary donations will receive a receipt for your charitable gift. 

If you or your organization would like to host a free activity or game for youth at the park during the event, you are encouraged to do so!  Tessa Rehkop, President of the Madison County Chamber of Commerce will be organizing this aspect of the event and you may direct inquiries to her at (573) 783-2604 or  Activities may include:  Sand Volleyball, Basketball Toss, Baseball Derby, Horseshoe Toss, Tennis Match, Bounce House, Sidewalk Chalk Contest, Ring Toss, Musical Chairs, Freeze Dance, Outdoor Twister, Watermelon Seed Spitting, Sponge Toss, Yard Pick-Up Sticks, Life Size Bubbles, or any other activity of your choice!  You may want to lead a craft like: Popsicle Stick American flags, Can Bowling, Fireworks Painting, Popsicle Stick Streamers, Lady Liberty Crowns, Sparkler Hats, Pinwheels or one of your own design.

For over 25 years, the Optimist Club has been a dedicated volunteer organization working assiduously to make our future brighter by bringing out the best in children and in our community.  The volunteers serving in the Optimist Club are active community leaders, fostering partnerships and dedicating time and effort in many facets of community involvement.  Please join our ever growing efforts to improve the lives of people in our community.
