|Declaring our Independence!|
Cathy and I were pleased to see that more and more people are attending the presentation. This year it was an “interactive” reading of America’s Declaration of Independence – complete with patriots, loyalists, and muskets. Huzzah!

|Jean in the Garden|
Got to love the strains of the Patriotic music along with people strolling about in costume. If you visit the George Taylor home at some later date, check out the garden that is taken care of by another BFF, Jean. It is beautiful.
Cathy and I did something also different this year and so did the Historic Catasauqua Preservation Association, they celebrated the Froth of July with a exhibition of breweries, bottles and beer at the Beiry House Museum located at 8 Race Street in Catasauqua. (Thanks Ben for showing off your collection)
Heads up (that was a beer pun) if you ever get the opportunity to tour through the Beiry house do it, it is beautiful! The house is decorated with original pieces. Along with the art work of local artist, Bob LeFevre of the homes and businesses of Catasauqua. He collection is breath taking, along with other artists, the whole museum is a great experience.
A visit to the upstairs is a must, but do not be alarmed by the headless women they are only mannequins (yes Cathy!)
Oh - and get this - The Biery House is available for special occasions. Affordable elegance for small gatherings - such as - Birthday - Showers and special occasions. And here is what I want to do - but I might be too old, Fancy Dress-Up Tea Parties for the birthday girl!!! Call 610-264-9716 for information.
I would like to end with this from the Declaration of Independence -
