 4th-of-july

 

On July 2, 1776, the Continental Congress voted for separation from Britain.

 

 

On this day 236 years ago...the Declaration of Independence was formally adopted.

It wasn't signed until August 2nd.

Happy Birthday America!!

 

 

Did you know??

 

July is National Hot Dog Month, and according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, Americans will be consuming the infamous little red tubes of "meat" in record numbers this summer.

The Council estimates that over seven billion hot dogs will be eaten by Americans between Memorial Day and Labor Day. During the July 4th weekend alone (the biggest hot-dog holiday of the year), 155 million will be downed.

If you ask me...that is A LOT of Hot Dogs!

State Senator Paul Lambert Announces

Nebraska Department of Roads Information Session

 

LINCOLN – District 2 State Senator Paul Lambert will host an information session about state roads projects in eastern Nebraska from 1:30 to 3:00 pm. on Friday, July 20 at the Plattsmouth Senior Center, 308 South 18th Street in Plattsmouth, Nebraska. Nebraska Department of Roads Construction Engineer Marv Lech and Project Engineer Rick Fisher will provide information and answer questions about the Department's current and future projects.

 

“Constituent requests for more information about road construction prompted me to organize this session with the Nebraska Department of Roads,” said Senator Lambert. “I appreciate the Department's willingness to share its knowledge and expertise with us. The July 20 session will be a great opportunity to get up-to-date information about the projects we can see now and those we can expect in the future.”

 

“ I look forward to joining District 2 citizens for this event at the Plattsmouth Senior Center on Friday, July 20,” said Senator Lambert.
