4th of July

Saturday, July 4, 2015

This Fourth of July marks the 239th anniversary of our nation’s founding. When we gather with family and friends to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence, we pay tribute to the document that paved the way for a new nation and a new way of life.

This Saturday there will be parades and floats and costumes and games. I hope you will join me to celebrate our nation’s birth at these local events:

10:00 a.m. City of Sierra Madre parade

11:00 a.m. City of South Pasadena parade
