Join us at the Pegram 4th of July Parade

We will be at the Pegram 4th of July parade on July 3 at 9am.  Please join us and your neighbors celebrating our freedom.  The 4th of July 1776 was the day our country declared itself free from tyranny to set our own course, establishing a democracy that has long been the ideal among nations,.  These words from the Declaration of Independence still resonate today:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…….”

The Declaration is a powerful document that should be read by every citizen to instill pride in our democracy and to remind us that democracy is not guaranteed.  We must  not grow complacent, but instead work to keep our country true to the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence.
