• Historical reasons for our independence and what happened to the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence.
• Reading of the Declaration of Independence.
• Do we have Founders today?
• Remembering the reasons for the fireworks.
• Audience participation in singing of the National Anthem, including a special rendition of its fourth verse.

Bring a blanket or chair, hydration and a fellow Patriot.
We’ll see you on Independence Day for this non-partisan celebration.
