Looking ahead: The Fourth of July holiday is upon us and many cities are planning parades, concerts, children’s activities and firework displays. These are great events to share with your family and neighbors so check your city’s website to see what festivities are happening. We encourage you to be safe during these celebrations. Make sure that fireworks are properly used and keep a water supply near, supervise the barbecue grill, watch the children at the beach or pool, use lots of sun protection and drink plenty of water. Enjoy celebrating the birth of this great nation 242 years ago! Read
