A Message from Councilwoman Sophia Gingrich - July 2021

 
July’s birthstone symbol is the Ruby, and it is  considered to be the king of gems and represent love, health and wisdom. It was believed wearing a fine red Ruby bestowed good fortune on its owner. A Ruby is the most valuable gemstone and its value increases based on its color and quality.    July's birth flower is larkspur. Each color variation of larkspur has a different meaning: pink means fickleness, white conveys a happy nature, and purple normally represents a first love. Generally, larkspur indicates strong bonds of love.
July brings one of our most important day of the year to observe.
 
July 4th, Independence Day commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th,1776. Independence Day is the most important secular holiday held in the United States. Americans take this day to celebrate all that is American, remembering the great sacrifices of our forefathers as they fought and won our independence from Great Britain. The holiday is also referred to as 4th of July, named after the date it is celebrated each year.  Celebrated with fireworks and our red, white and blue colors, the United States is home to every and any nationality, we welcome all, giving everyone the opportunity to live a free, peaceful and wonderful life. 
 
Our President John F. Kennedy, said, “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty”.
God Bless these United States.
 

Lady of Liberty

lady of liberty and mother of freedom and justice to all,......
who offers her welcome to whomever may call,
be them rich, poor or o ppressed,....
she stands watch in the in her robes, so dressed,...
....a gift of friendship from france to the u.s.
dedicated in 1886 and designated a national monument in 1924,.....
a historic landmark to it's very core.
she passed her torch from bedloe's to the renamed liberty island,...
...never frowned,.....but, kept on smiling.
she raised her torch of eternal light and freedom upward 
toward the heavenly clouds,......
evoking cries and tears of emotion from the visiting crowds.
so, thanks to the great genius of bartholdi and eiffel our symbol 
of freedom still stands by the bay,.....
to signal to all passing through, that liberty, justice and the 
pursuit of happiness and opportunity in America is here to stay,......
in the good ole U.S.A.
