🎆 Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸

We hope you had a great time at the Monroeville parade this morning! Fireworks will start at 9:30pm at the Monroeville Mall!

As we come together to celebrate our nation's independence, let's remember to stay safe and make responsible choices. Whether you're enjoying fireworks, having a BBQ, or spending time with family and friends, here are a few tips to ensure a fun and safe holiday:

1. **Fireworks Safety**: Always follow local laws and guidelines. Keep a safe distance, and never allow children to handle fireworks.
2. **Grill Safety**: Keep grills away from structures and never leave them unattended. Have a fire extinguisher or a bucket of water nearby just in case.
3. **Water Safety**: If you're heading to the beach, pool, or lake, make sure to supervise children and never swim alone. Stay hydrated and apply sunscreen regularly.
4. **Pet Safety**: Keep pets indoors during fireworks to reduce their stress. Ensure they have a quiet, comfortable space.

Let's honor our freedom by celebrating responsibly and looking out for each other. Have a fantastic and safe Independence Day!
