Library of Congress and July 4

I do hope you are making plans to celebrate Independence Day downtown in Seville Square. The City is incredibly appreciative to the Pensacola Sertoma Club which organizes the whole thing, along with all of their sponsors. In addition to the fireworks at 9 pm, they hold free children's activities in Seville Square all day plus live music in the evening. Make sure to come down. Visit their site for more information.

In addition, this year we will have a special treat, the Library of Congress traveling exhibit. It will be in Fountain Park (south of Seville Square) on July 3 and 4. It is free and open from 11 am to 7 pm both days. The exhibit will include high-quality reproductions of many of the Library's top treasures including a rough draft of the Declaration of Independence and many other items. Thanks to the West Florida Public Library for sponsoring this exhibit.

We are very fortunate in this community to have so many wonderful events going on. I hope to see you at some of them.
