The 4th of July… Independence Day

Fireworks and barbecue… is that what it’s all about?  That’s the celebratory part of the day we attempt to remember our country’s freedom from foreign rule.  Americans  come together and continue in what  began in 1776, that … “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”  (from the Declaration of Independence)     We will be closed on Wed., July 4th. Enjoy your holiday!
