Happy 4th of July!!

Summer has officially arrived!!! All of us in the community look forward to the start of summer because the pool is open, fun outdoor events such as the ice cream social and Fourth of July parties are coming up, and so many beautiful colors are out in full bloom.  We mark the start of summer with our annual pool party and picnic.   Everybody gathers in the community building or out by the pool and we relax and enjoy the camaraderie along with some traditional summer fare. 
Not only do we get to enjoy chatting with old neighbors, but we also get to meet the new people that moved in over the winter.  We bring our favorite summer dishes to share and try new creations as well. I was reading my favorite magazine called “Taste of Home” and they had a whole section of Patriotic Desserts that are perfect for July 4th. Here is a link that will take you to all sorts of great ideas for your celebration, just click on Taste of Home: Flag Recipes.  My contribution will be to make the “Patriotic Pizza”.

I almost forgot my other favorite part of the July 4th celebrations is watching the great fireworks display in town.  It really makes me feel like a kid again!

Have a Happy & Safe July 4th!

 Get In On It
