Happy Birthday America!

President Harry Truman once said, “America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” And on July Fourth, these truths are exactly what Americans celebrate. This year July Fourth falls on a Wednesday, so mark your calendars with family festivities. Fulshear, Richmond and Rosenberg offer plenty of opportunities for celebrating America with a weekend long birthday party.
