4th of July is coming!
“We must be free not because we claim freedom,but because we practice it.”
~ William Faulkner
July 4th Independence Day is not only a day of picnics, parades and waving of the Old Glory. It is much more than that - it is an annual celebration to commemorate the courage and faith of our founding fathers in their pursuit of liberty, and the sacrifices made in the struggle to unite a young nation.
So give special thanks to those who serve our country (and their families) for their dedication and sacrifice to uphold these same principles of freedom to this day, both at home and abroad.
The Oklahoma City Philharmonic will offer free patriotic pops concerts this week. "Red, White and Boom!” at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Chisholm Trail Park, 500 W Vandament in Yukon. The Saturday performance is part of Yukon’s annual Freedom Fest. Guest soloist is tenor Mike Eldred. The performance will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display!
