June 16, 2010 - Final fireworks fundraiser

Funding for bright lights at night is in sight, but this year's fireworks show isn't out of the dark yet, says Fireworks Association President Carl Cyrowski.

The show is expected to cost $25,000. So far, the association's raised 70 percent, according to Cyrowski. Four poker tournaments earlier this year started fundraising efforts off well, but donations have slowed down since then, he said.

The show will be Saturday, July 3, with July 4 as an alternative date.

Coming up June 27, the association will hold their final fundraiser, a brunch at the Lake Orion Boat Club. A $12 donation for adults and $6 for children 12-and-under will get guests a plate. Hours are 9 a.m. to noon.

Call the boat club that morning for shuttle service Ė 248-693-2900. Service is available from the Snug Harbor Bait Shop (Heights Road) and from the Lighthouse office building (M-24, north of Heights).

Cyrowski said he would like to clear up any residual confusion about a second fireworks display proposed by the Lions Club during the Jubilee.

To put it simply: the association's traditional display is on; the Lions Club's proposed display never came to fruition and is off.

New gas station on Baldwin?

Plans for a proposed gas station and party store located at 10 and 20 North Baldwin Road will come up for public comment when the Orion Township Board of Trustees and the Orion Township Planning Commission hold a joint public hearing at 7:05 p.m., Wednesday, July 7.

Plans for the PUD, submitted to the township by applicants Darrell and Mary Lou Enneking, will be available before the meeting.
