Pine Bluffs Post - Serving all of Eastern Laramie County since 1908

Burns News


Did you know? John Adams believed that July 2 was the correct date on which to celebrate the birth of American independence, and would reportedly turn down invitations to appear at July 4 events in protest? Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4, 1826 – the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by 90 percent of the nation’s population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

The International Ice Cream Association (IICA) encourages retailers and consumers to celebrate July as National Ice Cream Month. The U.S. ice cream industry generated total revenues of $10 billion in 2010.

About 9 percent of all the milk produced by U.S. dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream, contributing significantly to the economic well-being of the nation’s dairy industry.

Friday July 4 the Burns Branch Library will be closed in honor of Independence Day. Have a fun and safe Fourth of July celebration!

Summer Reading Celebration is underway at the Laramie County Library System. If you haven’t already signed up to read and earn prizes there is still plenty of time! Stop by any library facility to join in the fun.
