HANFORD - In the spirit of the holiday, Hanford residents, Ron and Marilyn Peterson, decorate their home for the Fourth of July.
Marilyn often creates a display sign for each holiday she and Ron decorate their home with. The display gives background to the holiday, or adds a touch of history.
The July Fourth sign reads:
"Happy birthday, U.S.A
The Second Continental Congress declared the unanimous Declaration of Independence of the thirteen United States of America officially to be July 4, 1776
...We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
