4 Ways to Celebrate the 4th
The grill is sizzling, fireworks are popping, and you're wearing your best and brightest collection of red, white, and blue. The Fourth of July is a time-honored tradition of celebrating our freedom with family and friends. This is a great time to look back on our heritage, and then look forward to where we are going. If you're anything like my family, you're asking - "Where are we going to see fireworks?"
