Celebrating American independence

The Greater Tri-City Area is gearing up once again for Fourth of July festivities. A federal holiday, Fourth of July (or Independence Day) celebrates our freedom from the British Empire and commemorates the formal adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Centuries later, Americans still gather on Fourth of July weekend for parades, picnics, barbeques, concerts, fireworks and more.

Celebrating the birth of American independence, the greater Tri-Cities are hosting several family-friendly events:

Celebrate July 4th onboard the aircraft carrier USS Hornet. Family-friendly activities are scheduled throughout the day, including a flight simulator, jump house, interactive games and more. Enjoy live music from Eddie & the Boppers, Crawdad Republic, and Heartless, a Heart tribute band. Explore the ships Captains Bridge, Sick Bay, Torpedo Room, Officers Quarters WWII and modern aircraft, Apollo Space Exhibit and more. A classic car show on the pier will start at noon. At 9:15 p.m., enjoy a view of the San Francisco fireworks.
for the production and financing of the parade.

Stars and stripes retired, veterans honored

We are used to seeing it flying strong and bright above us, those stars and stripes that identify our country and patriotism. But what happens when that once proud flag begins to look worn and shabby? Congress mandated in 1923 in the U. S. Flag Code that flags considered no longer fit to represent our nation should be retired in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

Fremont Elks Lodge #2121 was the site of an inspirational evening when a Flag Retirement Ceremony was held on Friday, June 10, 2016.

We are paying homage and bringing recognition and tribute to the fact that we dont allow a tattered American flag to be flown out of respect for those who fought for it, Exalted Ruler (Elks chapter leader) Steve Kay said. The ceremony is symbolic to pay respect for veterans. All gave some and some gave all, so we renew our patriotic vows.

Watermarks opens at Olive Hyde

Forty-four paintings by 44 Signature Members were selected out of 78 entries for this years show.
