With the celebration of Independence Day over, a few thoughts come to mind.  

First, how great it is that we as a city are able to start our activities of the day with prayer. Most people don't think about this, but it is a very important thing to be celebrated as well.

Second, THANK YOU to all the service men and women who make it possible to live in the land of the free and home of the brave.  

Third, a huge THANK YOU to all the individuals and groups who did so much work and thoughts to make the celebration possible.

I would also like to look at what all has been completed in the last few months.  1st Avenue is almost complete and the new playground equipment is installed in the central park even earlier than the council had predicted. Since fundraising went so well, we were able to replace it a few years ahead of schedule. 

All of this makes me so glad to call Sully home for me and my family.
