     Hello, and thank you for visiting.  Many of you know me, but for the ones who do not, I am Josh London.  I, along with Victor Hundt, put on the annual Cottonwood fourth of July firework show.  Over the years past, the show has grown into a neighborhood tradition, and I believe that most everyone seems to enjoy it. I have personally put in houndred of hours Choreographing and preparing each show and contributed financially quite a bit to supplement what Cottonwood provided, but this year that is not an option for me.  I have had a rough year with medical issues and expenses, and have basically been unable to work the entire year thus far; therefore, I am unable to donate my usual contribution (I also got married, so the wife says no...).  Luckily I am mostly recovered and starting to work on this year's show, but we are in need of donations to cover expenses for supplies and equipment maintenance.  I am always willing to donate my time and effort into providing a great show. I know and it would mean a lot to me and the neighborhood if everyone could chip in a little to help make this happen.

     On average these shows run around $4000 - $5000, and that is simply the cost of supplies and the fireworks themselves.  I also have very expensive computer firing equipment in the field that usually takes some damage, and I would like to keep everything in good working order to ensure we can keep the shows running every year.

     If you all enjoy the show and would like to keep it going, I ask of you to please donate. There is no amount too small; even just a few dollars would help immensely.  Thank you all so much and if anyone has any concerns or questions, please feel free to give me a call at 615-351-2536.  Also, if anyone is interested in learning how a professional firework show is set up and would like to help out, please let me know.  I am always in need of volunteers for the event.

Thank you all!




Thank you to all that cleaned up the firework mess this morning, but I really need to know where the trash was placed. I had left some of my equipment in the field last night with an assurance that it would not be trashed and it was. I am missing around $500 in equipment that I need to recover. In particular lots of high grade 10 AWG copper speaker cable. Please if anyone has this information give me a call at 615-351-2536.

Also, I am keeping the donation site up for a while longer. Due to some issues with the show last night I had about $2500 in equipment destroyed, so all in all, with the stuff missing this morning I am now in the hole over $3000. I am not in a position to replace this equipment and I purchased this years back strictly for the neighborhoods use with my own funds. All donations will be much appreciated and thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far. With the current state of my equipment, I will not be able to do the cottonwood fireworks for next year unless we can raise enough money to replace critical system equipment.

I thought the show went great and I hope everyone had a great time. Thank you all for your support and I hope to be able to continue doing the fireworks in the future.
