Friday is Arts ‘n Crafts day at the El Campo Branch Library

The Lara family was busy working hard on their beautiful suncatchers.  Mom, Desiree Lara, helps her younger daughter Juliette while Aralyn seems to have it all under control.

We eagerly look forward to the upcoming July 4th weekend. I feel confident there will be numerous cookouts featuring barbecue, hot dogs, burgers, potato salad and even ice-cold watermelon. The food cookout is certainly fun and the family time is priceless.

How different our lives would be if our forefathers hadn’t had the insight and the courage to speak out for the new land of America and fight for independence from England and the opportunity to make informed choices and decisions. We are blessed to be citizens of this great nation and I firmly believe that the heart and soul of what was written into the Declaration of Independence is still alive in the hearts of many Americans. Let’s find our patriotism once again and build our country back to a proud nation of Americans.
