On Tuesday July 4th many of our Residents went outside in the morning before mass for the raising of the American flag. The raising of the American flag started as it should, with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a beautiful rendering of God Bless America.
The raising of the American flag was complete with the Rifle Volley and Taps beautifully performed by the VFW.
The weather was warm, as were our hearts filled with warmth as we celebrated America and its birthday. The vivid colors of America were present everywhere we looked; a beautiful reminder to say thank you to those who served and those who continue to serve in our armed forces. “God bless America, my home sweet home.”
