Closed for Independence Day

July 3, 2020 0

We will be closed in honor of Independence Day on Friday, July 3.

Here are some fun facts for Independence Day:

• An estimated 2.5 million people lived in the nation in July 1776. As of July 2017, about 325.7 million people live in the U.S.

• Three presidents who signed the Declaration of Independence died on July 4. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4, 1826 — on the 50th anniversary of the country’s independence. James Monroe died five years later on July 4, 1831.

• The Liberty Bell rings 13 times every Independence Day to honor the 13 original states. Descendants of people who signed the Declaration of Independence tap the bell, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at 2 p.m. eastern time every 4th of July.

• The very first 4th of July fireworks show took place in Philadelphia in 1777. Fireworks, cannons, and bells all went off to honor the 13 original states. Much like modern celebrations, they even had a parade for the Declaration of Independence’s first anniversary.

We will be open again on Monday, July 6. If you need us during the long weekend, or any time, just call (707) 964-1251 and the on call clinician will be happy to help you. We are always here for you, 24/7/365!
