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.
