Fireworks Next Year, Maybe, In Altamont

A fledgling effort is underway to bring fireworks displays back to Altamont.
Josh Cagle said it won't happen this year, but he's working to come up with funding to pay for a fireworks display next year.
Cagle is working to become certified as a fireworks shooter for S&N Fireworks in Lincoln. In the meantime, he'd love to fire off a display in the town where he lives.
Cagle had a fundraiser last weekend but it was a busy weekend in Altamont and proceeds were less than promising. He said he'd be back at it this Saturday, though, on the triangle in downtown Altamont. Cagle will be using the S&W Supermarket grill to cook up hamburgers, porkburgers, and hot dogs, and he'll have chips and drinks available. Net proceeds are to go to the purchase of fireworks for next year's 4th of July celebration.
Altamont city officials have agreed to hold any money raised toward a goal of $3,500 that Cagle says would pay for a 25-minute display.
The fundraiser Saturday is to run from 9am to 2pm.
