Independence Day

Today we celebrate with each of you our great nation’s independence. The freedoms and opportunities we enjoy as Americans exist because of the hard work, sacrifice and dedication of countless individuals. We are grateful for those individuals.

Two hundred and thirty seven years ago a group of individuals forged a new future when they gathered to declare that America would be the land of the free. Our second President, John Adams is quoted as saying:

This day will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

It is our hope that this day will bring celebration for you and your family as you reflect upon the blessings of this nation, and that from one end of the continent to the other the great anniversary festival will be celebrated.
