West Delaware’s Class of 2020 graduates are getting treated to a night of fireworks before they head off their separate ways.
Manchester insurance agent Darrell Rich is organizing the event, which will take place this Sunday night at the Delaware County Fairgrounds.
Rich says they exceeded their goal of raising seven thousand dollars to make this event happen, with local businesses sponsoring the night. The students also recently held a car wash fundraiser and spare change was collected in jars at local restaurants.
Chloe Thein and Gabby Schuman are among the seniors who just graduated this summer from West Delaware. They say they appreciate being able to have an event like this.
The gates will be open from 7:30 to 9:30 pm Sunday, with activities starting at 8 pm. The event is only open to West Delaware’s Class of 2020 graduates and invited guests, but the public can watch the fireworks from outside the fairgrounds starting around dusk.
