FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — MAY 8, 2013 –

The City of West Sacramento has held its annual lottery to see which schools, churches and nonprofit organizations will be authorized to operate a fireworks booth during the Fourth of July season.

The winners:

West Sacramento Little League will operate a booth near Papa Murphy’s Pizza, Lake Washington and Jefferson boulevards in Southport.

Campus Life Connection/Collings West Sacramento Teen Center will be in front of Safeway.

Joy Christian Ministries will be outside Wal-Mart.

The West Sacramento Christmas Basket Project will be at Jefferson Plaza.

West Sacramento Community Singers will have a booth near Walgreens and La Bou.

The West Sacramento Historical Society will be at the Southport Town Center.

The West Sacramento Rotary will sell fireworks near Whitey’s Jolly Kone near Jefferson and 15th Street.

River City Rowing Club will be in front of Arteaga’s Supermarket on Sacramento Avenue at Kegle Drive.

Each group will work with a fireworks wholeseller, and will get to keep some of the proceeds from the “safe and sane” fireworks. The booths will open up about a week before July 4.
