We're lucky in West County to have a variety of great ways to celebrate the 4th of July, from parades to music festivals to BBQ's.
As many of us work extra hard today to make our country truly
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,
" this is a meaningful time to honor our birth as an independent democracy.
Celebrating the 4th is a way to honor these important sentiments of our founders.
Take a look at this list of events. I hope to see you out there!
