ONTARIO — Our beloved country turns 243 years old today as we celebrate our independence.
Ontario is a community that is proud to have so many World War II veterans, including the Japanese American Nisei from the 442nd. Thank you, to the veterans who reside within our community as we celebrate our freedom this Independence Day with a Coca-Cola and an apple pie.
Appreciation and patriotism can be expressed in so many ways: Ontario citizens express their patriotism by proudly flying red, white and blue throughout town on every flag holiday.
This service is rendered to our community by members of the Ontario Lions Club. On the Fourth of July and other flag holidays, weather permitting, Lions members put flags out at dawn and collect them at dusk.
“It is a thing of American beauty to see Ontario businesses partake in this service and fill our sidewalks with our national colors in observation of so many noble causes,” writes Reynolds.
