A Red, White and Blue Christmas

2008 Program Graphic Green Room

Silver eagles and stars in the garland on the mantel add a special touch to this already festive room. And the painting of Independence Hall in Philadelphia is a fitting tribute to this year's patriotic theme.

During the holidays we are especially mindful of the many blessings in our lives, including our American freedom. Both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed at Independence Hall, the birthplace of our country. This historic landmark housed the Liberty Bell for more than 200 years! As you think about this history, remember the patriots who gave so much to create a new country dedicated to liberty and justice for all.
