FULTON, NY – For many people the Fourth of July means family time, cookouts, barbeque, and fireworks.
This year marks 237 years of independence and the United States being its own nation.
At the July 2 Common Council meeting many of the councilors took a moment to say some words about our most patriotic holiday.
“I’d like to wish everyone a happy Independence Day,” said Councilor Pete Franco. “It’s a time to reflect on our founders and all the people involved with the conflict back then. Hopefully we don’t lose sight of the fact we’ve become a strong nation and a dependable nation for everyone around the world.”
“I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July,” said Councilor Jay Foster.
“Be safe,” said Councilor Carm Cavallaro. “And don’t forget, you don’t have to wait for a holiday to honor all our men and women in the service.”
“To go with what my counterparts said,” added Councilor Larry Macner, “have a happy, safe, Fourth of July weekend.”
“Have a wonderful holiday,” echoed Mayor Ron Woodward.
