7/4/2023 Fourth of July Message from the General Manager

On this particular day, let us come together to celebrate the birth of the United States of America and the values it stands for. Independence Day is a time to honor the bravery and determination of those who fought for freedom and reflect on the principles of liberty, equality, and justice our nation upholds.

The 4th of July marked the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 when the thirteen American colonies declared their independence from British rule. This act of defiance paved the way for establishing the United States as a sovereign nation free from foreign control. Independence Day celebrates freedom and the core values upon which the United States was founded. It represents the fundamental rights and liberties that Americans hold dear. The 4th of July provides an opportunity to honor and pay tribute to the patriots and founding fathers who played a crucial role in shaping our nation. The 4th brings people from diverse backgrounds together to celebrate their shared heritage, values, and love for their country. It encourages Americans to set aside their differences and come together as one nation. Let us honor our history, appreciate our rights and liberties, and reaffirm our commitment to the principles that make the United States the greatest nation in the world.

May this day be filled with joy, unity, and gratitude for our countless blessings as Americans. As we gather with family and friends, let us appreciate the beauty of our diverse nation and the freedoms we cherish. Let us also remember the sacrifices our servicemen and women made, who have selflessly defended our liberties throughout history. Let us strive to build a brighter future together, embracing the values that make our country strong.

Happy Fourth of July!
