Democratic Club Celebrates America’s Birthday

Our hearts beat red, white, and blue

Having a Yankee Doodle day

Vicki Baker

America celebrated the 245th anniversary of its founding over the July 4th weekend. It was a time to show our patriotism and extol our freedoms. It was a time to come together after more than a year curtailed by coronavirus pandemic restrictions, greeting each other with hugs, handshakes, and high-fives, emphasizing the importance of community.

Robson Ranch (RR) celebrated Independence Day in true American style—the star-spangled tradition of the annual July 4th Parade was back! The RR Democratic Club was proudly represented by decorated golf carts, walkers, flags, and club banners. We marched along with an entertaining array of whimsical floats, community service groups, classically cool cars, costumed pooches, and our honored veterans. As the parade wound its way along crowded Ed Robson Blvd, hundreds of spectators watched, cheered, and mingled with one another once again.

On this day, the RR Democratic Club, along with family, friends, and neighbors, all stood together and saluted America. We looked past our political differences and the heated rhetoric in Washington. We focused on what we cannot deny is good and true—that we are a free people in the most principled and welcoming country in the world. We proudly showed that no matter where we come from or what our beliefs are, at the end of the day, we’re all Americans. Because united, we stand strong!
