To the Editor:

On behalf of the Great Basin Service Club I would like to thank The Ely Times for its coverage of the Fourth of July parade and fireworks display. We would also like to thank all those who participated in the parade and who helped support the fireworks through the “Buy a Shot” program. We also appreciate the business and individual donations.

The Great Basin Service Club not only sponsors the Independence Day festivities, but we are also responsible for the Christmas decorations and lights in Ely and McGill. What we do may not seem very exciting, but imagine what our community would be like without either of these services. We are a very small group and are looking for additional members. It is very rewarding to see the results of our efforts and the time commitment is minimal. You can either choose to attend meetings or just be involved in the projects. We would welcome any and all volunteers. Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 11. We meet at the Hotel Nevada Coffeeshop at 5:30 p.m. If you would like more information, please contact Bunny Hill at 296-0439, Allan Wise at 296-3636 or myself at 289-4689.
