Our offices were closed yesterday, in celebration of Independence Day, July 4. We want to take a brief moment to reflect about the importance of this day.
July 4th has been a federal holiday since 1941, but the celebration dates back to the American Revolution. Since 1776, July 4 has been celebrated as the birth of our nation’s independence. To learn more about the history of July 4, click here.
Our deepest gratitude goes to the servicemen and women currently fighting to keep us safe and free and to U.S. military veterans who served our country. Thank you for your service and your dedication!
We wish everyone a happy Independence Day – we hope you enjoy it with loved ones, good food, and gratitude.
