September 3, 2020
COLFAX—The Rotary Club’s firework stand at the Rosaures parking lot brought in just over $17,000 gross sales, according to the club’s monthly newsletter. The cost of the fireworks was the biggest expense at almost $10,000. Other expenses included credit card machine rental and supplies. That still left $7,115.32 to be split between the Rotary Club and Colfax High School Softball team.
Donations to the softball team brought in an extra $73.03.
The Rotary’s share goes into the club’s general fund where it is used for any and all of the club’s programs, according to President Hank Hanigan. Due to the pandemic, the club has not been able to meet in person for several months.
The newsletter also stated that the TNT Washington Tacoma fireworks warehouse completely sold out.
Of all sales at the booth, 58% were credit card sales and the rest were cash.
