While it failed to achieve itsgoal this year, non-profit MedfordCelebrates hopes to bring theFourth of July fireworks back toMedford in 2012.Beth Portocalis, director of recreation in Medford, said she is“obviously disappointed” that thegroup couldn’t drum up the$40,000 needed to stage the fire-works this year.“Everyone on the committeeknew coming into the year that itwould be difficult,” she said. Med-ford Celebrates is a committeecreated by 15 volunteers earlierthis year.However, by opening channelsto private companies this year,the group may just snag enoughsponsorship to put the show onnext year.Portocalis said Medford Cele-brates uses a three-pronged ap-proach to raising money.First, they are looking for cor-porate sponsors for the Independ-ence Day event.Second, they have fund raisers,like selling Phillies tickets on con-signment and hosting a car show.And third, they rely on dona-tions from individuals.Portocalis stressed that Med-ford Celebrates does not want tocompete with other groups intown for sponsorship.“We didn’t want them to becanceled because of lack of fi-nances,” she said. “These eventsare part of the fabric of Medford.“Given the large number of residents, as well as people fromother towns, who expressed theirdisappointment that the fire-works couldn’t be held in 2010, Iwould hope that the (Medford Cel-ebrates) Foundation will get a lotof financial support,” Portocalisadded.Medford Celebrates PresidentBob Egan said the last time Med-ford had Fourth of July fireworkswas 2009.He said many donations werecontingent on the group findingenough money to put on the fire-works.Medford Celebrates is lookingfor more volunteers to planmoney-generating events, and isseeking sponsors for specialevents and help to support eventsthe town budget cannot afford in2012.“These are tough economictimes but we are grateful for thecontinued generosity of our resi-
