It’s that time of year again for the Whiz – Bang – Poof of July 4th fireworks!
Instead of buying your package of fireworks fun from an intenerate vendor that moves into your neighborhood for a week – consider supporting the great work that the non-profit David Douglas Dads Club (DDDC) does by stopping by their stand.
DDDC volunteer Matthew Dwyer and president Dan Deardorff finish installing the shelves in their fireworks booth on SE 122nd Avenue. It’s empty because they remove the merchandise when the booth isn’t open for business.
“For years, this has been our major, annual fundraiser,” DDDC’s president, Dan Deardorff told us. “With these funds, we support activities across the entire school district.
The David Douglas Dads Club Fireworks Stand:
- It’s open from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. every day – now through July 4.
- 100% of the proceeds go to support their programs.
- Everything from a dollar on up; packages from $10 to $200 of Oregon-approved fireworks.
- At Midway Plaza, on SE 122 Ave., just south of SE Division St., under the Pizza Baron sign.
