With temperatures rising and the Fourth of July around the corner, thoughts turn to our forefathers who declared their independence from England and established the United States on July 4, 1776.  We celebrate on July 4 because that is the date that the Declaration of Independence was finalized and signed.  It is said that John Hancock signed his name “with a great flourish” so that England’s “King George can read that without spectacles!”

Fireworks were part of the first Fourth of July and are an annual tradition.  This is the type of commemoration that the forefathers had hoped would continue so that every 4th of July would be celebrated with, as John Adams said, “pomp, parade…bonfires and illuminations from one end of the continent to the other.”

As we prepare to have fun with family and friends, please be conscientious of fireworks safety, courtesy to others, and celebrating responsibly.
