I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Events and Celebrations
Let’s keep this short so we can all get to celebrating our INDEPENDENCE DAY. The deed is done, so to speak, as the Continental Congress adopts the Declaration of Independence and all of its signatures. This is the moment we officially break away from England and declare ourselves to be our own country. Celebrate with family, food, fun and or fireworks and wish the good ol’ U.S.A. a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
We add a little health to the day with NATIONAL CAESAR SALAD DAY. We can thank chef Caesar Cardini for this one-of-a-kind creation that is a tasty filler before the big meal
What better food on the 4th than BARBEQUED SPARERIBS DAY? Rub them first with your special blend of seasoning – cook ‘em low and slow on the grill and then add the sauce. You should have crispy edges and tender middles. Gnaw away until only the bone is left.
