Reading of the Declaration of Independence – Tuesday, July 4, 2017 – 10:30 am

All Highland Lakes residents are encouraged to attend a reading of the Declaration of Independence in the Lake Room on Tuesday, July 4, at 10:30 am. Light refreshments will be served.

Highland Lakes resident Ron Berutti, an attorney and a published author on topics of constitutional history, returns again to read the Declaration of Independence and provide some historical context for the Declaration of Independence. Afterward, an open discussion will take place as to the Declaration’s meaning, its important role in the eternal struggle for freedom, and its continued vitality in today’s world. Younger residents of Highland Lakes who may not know much about the story of the American Revolution or who question the relevance of the Declaration of Independence to their lives today are particularly encouraged to attend. Adult residents who can share their American experiences are also encouraged to attend, so that we can learn from one another about how the torch of liberty has been carried forward to this day, and how we can help carry it forward into the future so that freedom may be preserved for future generations of Americans.

This is the sixth year for this popular event. The previous readings were well-attended and well-received by residents of all ages, and a lively and civil discussion took place among those in attendance. If you missed the prior presentations and discussions, make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to attend this year! You won’t regret it.
