The plug hasn't been pulled quite yet on the hope for fireworks in Norwalk on the Fourth of July.

Norwalk Veterans of Foreign Wars Post Commander Gary Felter said he met with VFW members Wednesday and the organization will begin looking for volunteers to help raise money for the show and guard the fireworks during the display.

"We're going to do all we can to help out," Felter said, adding both members and social members could be called upon to participate.

The VFW appears to be the last chance the city has to save the display. The Jaycees had put the show on the last several years but announced in January that the organization would be going in another direction. The decision was made in part because it was difficult to raise the $13,000 necessary for the fireworks even with the city kicking in $3,000.
