The third annual reading of the Declaration of Independence will be held on the Trumbull Town Hall steps at 10 a.m., on Friday, July 4.

Sponsored by the Historical Society and Trumbull Arts, last year a group of citizens, some in colonial costume, met to participate in Reading the Declaration of Independence. The ceremony was brief but heartwarming. Participants felt that it was the perfect way to begin their day devoted to celebrating the birthday of this great nation.

This year’s event will begin with a Cub Scout Honor Guard leading in the Pledge of Allegiance. Join in singing the Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America. Hear the passionate words written by our Founding Fathers against the tyranny of King George III as we confirm our resolve to forever be a free nation.

Bring your family and your friends, your flags and a chair. Join in celebrating of the birth of this great nation and in the reading of one of the most important founding documents of our country.
