Independence Day Celebration
Enjoy your holiday tomorrow and be safe! There is a city-wide display of fireworks in Bolivar tomorrow night after dark on the grounds of SBU. The fireworks are visible from the shopping canter across form SBU to the south, from Walgreens parking lot, from the AG church parking lot to the east, or from the grounds of the university.
In the afternoon there are many non-profit organizations that will sell food and drinks at SBU, and there is always a lot of visiting and fun, picnics on the grass (or preferably, on tarps covered with blankets this year due to rain we've had!)
We will commemorate American Independence Day this Sunday. You might read the lessons in advance - Note that they are not exactly what many people in our nation would have chosen for the day. It is a day for solemn remembrance and for repentance for falling short of our own ideals, and also a day for hope in the future - Wear your red, white and blue!
