TT th of July

Summer is under way and next week we’ll be out celebrating America’s independence. On July 4th 1776, the United States of America proclaimed its independence from England by signing the Declaration of Independence.  Around the country people have many traditions and favorite ways to celebrate. We asked the Spry team how they will be celebrating next week:

The 4th of July is coming up, what is your favorite food to BBQ or how do you celebrate? 

  • With a cold drink and NO ELECTRONICS – Ellen Zavian
  • You simply cannot go wrong with a cheeseburger, hot off the grill. LTO, ketchup and mustard included! – Matt Suchecki
  • Every year, we have the 4th of July Olympics.  Teams are created and we have events like a water balloon toss or three legged races throughout the day.  The winners are celebrated at the end of the evening while we watch fireworks. – Sarah Knysh
