My best wishes for a safe, meaningful and enjoyable 4th of July celebration.

Here's a reminder of the foundation of this proud national observance: America's Declaration of Independence.

Visit the state's new 4th of July online exhibit tracing the central role played by New York during the Revolutionary War.

Some safety reminders, and "How to properly display, fly the American Flag"

And for a few updates on local July 4th activities and attractions, see:

"Fireworks in the Twin Tiers"

"July 4 show features Finger Lakes harmony"

"Aviation author to sign book at July 4 Fly-In Breakfast"

"It's a Fourth of July celebration!"
