People can now donate to either fireworks show with Venmo. Search "Pequot Lakes Chamber of Commerce" or "@PequotLakesChamber;" or "Crosslake Chamber of Commerce" or "@CrosslakeChamber."

The Pequot Lakes Chamber has a fundraising goal of $12,000 for a roughly 12-minute fireworks show Sunday, July 3, as part of Stars & Stripes Days.

On average, professional fireworks shows cost $1,000 per minute. Funds currently total $4,050.

The 52nd annual Celebrate America fireworks display in Crosslake will take place at dusk Saturday, July 2, over Sand Island on Cross Lake.

The city of Crosslake is funding 75% of the show, and the Crosslake Chamber needs help to raise another $5,000.

Donors who submit payments by Friday, June 24, will receive radio recognition.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
