Happy Independence Day
Celebrate Your Freedom!
You are cordially invited to share Independence Day with fellow Conservatives at the Rappahannock County Fourth of July Celebration at Thornton Hill Race Course, proceeds for which benefit the Sperryville Volunteer Fire Department.
Under our Rappahannock Republican tent you will find a host of like-minded people who enjoy picnicking and politicking. Bring a dish to share with others, meet your neighbors (and perhaps a few Republican candidates), and join in the conversations. We will have free cookies and lemonade, along with a supply of 2013 campaign literature, yard signs and bumper stickers.
If you've never attended, make this year your first. There will be live music, and on-site vendors provide a variety of food, children's games/rides, face-painting and much more. The highlight of the day is, of course, a spectacular fireworks display at dusk! Please see the attached official flyer for a complete list of activities and amenities.
Here are a few items to consider bringing with you (from weather.com):
For Food Transporting and Storage: Cooler fully stocked with ice or ice packs, picnic basket, food storage containers
