Opening Of The Celebration

  • Date: Monday, July 4, 2022, at 9:15 A.M.

On July 4, 1963, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed the annual holiday…National Bell Ringing Day.
In the 1700’s, the bell was the main way people were called together or alerted to news – bells announced the start of church or the beginning and end of the school day, they proclaimed important news, celebrated events and acted as a warning for danger. And, ringing bells is how our forefathers celebrated the founding of our nation in 1776.
This year, and every year, let’s celebrate our FREEDOM and those who protect our FREEDOM….Veterans, Service Members, Firefighters and Law Enforcement. Ringing bells is a meaningful way to connect us to our forefathers and carry this tradition forward.
So, join us on July 4th at 9:15 a.m. to thoughtfully reflect on and celebrate our FREEDOM.
Let FREEDOM RING!
