Happy Independence Day!

The first Independence Day celebration
 took place the following year, July 4, 1777.

Although the signing of the Declaration of Independence was not completed until August, the Fourth of July has been accepted 
as the official anniversary of United States independence. 

By the early 1800s, the traditions of parades, picnics, and fireworks were established as the way to celebrate America’s birthday. 

A heart felt thank you & shout out to all who have served our amazing country to maintain our independence.
