Meaning of Independence Day


Several people gathered at Beutter Park to listen to live music and watch the Fireworks.

Before all the action started we asked people what Independence Day means to them.

Sue Johnson said,"It means of course the obvious freedom.. and to spend time with your family and celebrate that freedom."

Larry Tepe said, "Basically gives us the chance to come out here and be with everyone with my family."

Bill Lawecki said, "Celebrations of our heritage. The fact that we became a country over 200 years ago."

Some other people told us they enjoyed not having to go to work today.
