On this long July 4th weekend celebrate this special day by taking time to remember those who worked hard to ensure a better future for us. Not many can do the type of work that you do. So as we celebrate our nation's independence from tyranny and oppression, know that you are appreciated and that you live and work in one of the greatest countries on earth. Like we proclaimed at the 75th Anniversary celebration, America is already great and we will not accept hate, intolerance and defeatism as an American value. Happy Independence Day IBEW Local 1249! Enjoy the fireworks, family, food and fun and be safe this weekend.
