A two and a half table Howell movement was played at Dupli- cate Bridge on June 24. Betty Jean Durfee and Norms Bernd placed first. Bea'IYavegia and Claudia Cart came in second and Betty Durfee and Harold Bemd placed third. by Dixie Boyle Two hundred and twenty one years ago the thirteen colonies that made up the soon to be United States of America won their inde- pendence from England. With that independence came the right for its citizens to make choices, to govern their own lives, to be inde- pendent. This right the founders of our country worked so hard to attain is often taken for granted today. Independence Day was first cel- ebrated on July 8. 1776 in Phila- delphia, Pennsylvania. On July 4 of that year the Continental Con- gress had adopted the Declaration of Independence written by Tho- mas Jefferson. This document declared the country to be inde- pendent and free of forelgn powers with the right to govern their own country. On that first Independence Day the Declaration of Independence was read to the public, followed by the ringing of church bells and the playing of patriotic songs. The people truly rejoiced, because they had not known freedom as we do today. In 1941 Congress declared the Fourth of July a federal holiday. The tradition started in 1776 has continued throughout the past two centuries with parades, picnics, fireworks, game and family gath- erings. This Independence Day take time to remember why you are celebrating as you enjoy being with family and friends. :!i:i:i: construction area.
