Independence Day - Colin Powell

What are you doing for this 4th of July holiday weekend?

Whether you are planning to enjoy a spectacular fireworks display, cook out, go boating, take a vacation...or just sit back and relax and enjoy a few days off from work, won't you take a few moments to think about those whom we have to thank for our freedom? The brave men and women of our military, who may not get to enjoy days off this weekend - whose work goes on despite the holiday - especially those who are deployed to far-off, hostile lands, fighting for you and for me. Take a moment to hope for their safety, to hope that they may soon come home and see their loved ones.

And if you see someone in uniform this weekend - or any time - pause a second and thank him or her for all they do for our country. Just a simple "thank you" can speak volumes and will be remembered and appreciated.

The Gebhardt Group is already planning our "4th Annual Trick or Treat for the Troops" - our annual event collecting donations for care packages for our troops who are deployed during the winter holiday season. If you want more information about this year's event, or if you know of a member of our military who is or will be deployed, please contact us! You can email me at Maura@GebhardtGroup.com. We'd love to give you more information and to put your loved one's name on our list of care package recipients!

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
