The annual reading of the Declaration of Independence was held at the History Barn on the morning of July 4th. Lenny Brooks welcomed the audience, reading from a 1776 letter from Henry Aline, Jr., a Boston notary and clerk, describing the publication and public reading of the Declaration from the balcony of the Boston Town House, and the removal and burning of the King’s Arms from the courthouse and other places.
The Declaration was read by three readers: Steve Rogers, Amy Fryda and Rev. Linda Gard. Lenny led three cheers at the end.
Happy 4th everyone!
