The 4th of July sets off an array of festivities to celebrate our country's independence. It's as American as baseball, coke, and apple pie. That's just part of the celebrations we enjoy throughout the year and it's something each individual looks forward to. We don't even allow the hot weather to ruin our fun. BarBQ's, will be in full force and the fireworks will have to wait due to the burn bans the Fire Departments have enacted. The drought has cause many fires to break out and destroy large amounts of grasslands, plus home and buildings. It's okay with us because we'd rather be safe than sorry. Happy and safe 4th......to all!
