Independence Day July 4, 2021

July 4th, also known as Independence Day or The Fourth of July, since 1941 has been a federal holiday in the United States, but the tradition of Fourth of July celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 4th, 1776, two days after the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. Since 1776, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with celebrations ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more relaxed family gatherings and barbecues. The Fourth of July 2021 is this Sunday, and we here at Turning Point will be celebrating with a cookout, games and our own fireworks display. We are proud to be Americans.

I would also like to take this time to remind us that we are also citizens of another kingdom with our own
