If you have heard the booms in your neighborhood, this isn't news.
Firework sales started today (Saturday) in Dorchester.
The village's one and only fireworks stand is just south of the Dorchester Fire Hall. All proceeds from every firecracker sold will support the Dorchester's big fireworks show on July 4.
5 p.m. to 10 p.m. through July 1.
1 p.m. to 10 p.m. July 2 and July 3.
10 a.m. to 9 p.m. July 4.
Also, there will be a raffle drawing for "The Big Stuff" -- as in some of largest, most impressive fireworks from the fireworks stand. Raffle tickets will be sold at the stand, and the drawing will be held July 3 at 5 p.m. Need not be present to win.
"Big stuff" items are being donated due to the generous contributions of: BP Agronomics; Complete Ag; Novak Auction Service; Rut Auction Service; Weber Feedyards; Donna's Hair Creations; City Slickers; Ben's Iron Salvage; Smith's Tractor Salvage.
Dorchester's 4th of July celebration depends on private support. Dorchester area residents and friends of Dorchester are encouraged to send their donations to:
