As we celebrate our nation’s birthday, I am grateful for the founding fathers of our country and thank all who fought and died for the rights that we enjoy today. My profound gratitude goes out to those in our community who have served and are still serving to defend our nation. No matter where you celebrate this July 4, please take a moment to remember the men and women of our Armed Forces who helped make our freedom possible.

On behalf of the City of Frankfort, I wish everyone a happy, healthy, and safe Independence Day!
