Join us for 4th of July!

Come celebrate the words that made us great by joining in a public reading of the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights on Independence Day, July 4th, at Noon under the redwood trees in Peri Park. Everyone is invited and refreshments will be served. See the flyer, a pdf document, for more information. This was an idea of Council Member Mary Ann Maggiore, which was wholeheartedly endorsed by the Council. This has been a tradition in Council Member Maggiore's family for some time and we are excited to be celebrating our history and our liberties by joining in this tradition. Everyone is welcome to participate in reading sections of these documents aloud at the event. We will have copies of the documents, a book raffle, lemonade and cookies. Look for the balloons near the stage at Peri Park.
