Greetings from a northern neighbor who grew up near Sharon Heights. We just had our 100th in Burlingame with a beautiful display that was enjoyed by MANY families, friends and surrounding communities. However, we too received the FEW complaints. This was a 100th celebration, and the 4th of July is only a yearly celebration that families look forward to enjoying together. I say Let the the celebration begin, enjoy, and light a few extra for Ms. Austin, she is out numbered, don't give in Menlo Park, be proud to celebrate your country with pride and joy!!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
