Happy Independence Day

Have fun at the parades, barbecues, fireworks and rodeos. However, take a moment to remember the handful of patriots who risked everything when they declared Independence from England 235 years ago to make this day so special.

Freedom isnt free....fellow citizens made that first payment back at Lexington and are still making them every day so that people can enjoy freedom not just here in America but all around the world. Dont forget that. Those words in the Decleration of Independence and the Constitution were paid for in a dear cost by our citizens in the past, today and even in the future.
