What would you do if the show didn't happen? If the Batavia Access Fireworks Committee doesn't raise the $50,000 needed by May 1, the Fourth of July show and tradition will be canceled.

The Batavia Access Fireworks Committee is meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, at the Open Range, 35 N. Water St. in Batavia. Everyone is welcome to come and find out how they can help keep the show from being canceled.

How can you help?

• Enjoy a basketball game and cheer on Batavia's firefighters and police officers as they go against Batavia's teachers in the fourth annual Books vs. Badges basketball game Sunday, March 10, at Batavia High School. The Badges are looking for revenge this year, and there is an exciting half-time show planned. Doors open at 4 p.m., the game will start at 5 p.m. and ticket prices are $5 for adults and $2 for seniors and children.

• Or volunteer and help out the committee by sharing your ideas at the meetings. Or volunteer your time by walking in the Loyalty Day Parade, putting up garage sale signs or even just selling raffle tickets. Every little bit helps.

• Donate. It's easy for you to donate by sharing the "5 Minutes, 5 Friends, 5 Dollars" link with your friends at Or you can show your support by mailing a check to the "Batavia Fireworks Committee" at 100 N. Island Ave. Batavia.
