4th of July, 2012

Only a few days away, it is time to start planning your 4th of July celebration. This is a day to honor the birthday of the United States, and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, 236 years ago. What would an Independence Day celebration be without a picnic and an amazing firework show with family and friends?
There will be barbequing, socializing, and fun at the Olive Peirce Middle School from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Then at 9 p.m., enjoy a fireworks show which will be conducted in conjunction with patriotic music broadcast over KYXY-FM radio.
Hope to see you there!
