Spirit of Hope Draws Community Together to Celebrate Independence Day

Rain Independence Day afternoon did little to dampen spirits at the 12th annual “Spirit of Hope” 4th of July  celebration at First United Methodist Church.

The event featured live music from “The Outsiders Band”, food and events for the kids leading up to the sun going down where things were capped off with the fireworks show.

While not everyone attended the festivities on the church campus, parking lots around the area were packed with people who came out to enjoy the show.

The celebration was free and open to all and money from donations and hot dog and shaved ice sales went to support Methodist Family Health Services, Hope in Action and “The Call” of Hempstead County. All of which benefit many children, adults and families in our area.
