Fourth of July at the Olson's 2007

Great Fourth this year.
Breakfast for about 475.
Speeches, music, fireworks, yahoo.

We had our own bagpiper and the Catoctones, a barbershop chorus who were GREAT!!!Nathan was part of the Sheriff's Department honor guard that raised the flag.

Jillian enjoying herself. And big sister Elena all decked out with a crown of stars.

A frontiersman explained about being a soldier in the Revolutionary War.

We heard from the director of a local museum how the flag had changed over the years and what all the symbolism was about.
Roscoe Bartlet, our congressman, gave a few ideas of how we need to guard the Constitution in this our own time.
Veterans were acknowledged and honored for their devotion and service.
