You community's bicentennial is this year. The town council has decided to have a big July 4th celebration this year as part of the bicentennial events. You are part of a group of citizens who are planning the July 4th celebration.

There are multiple goals for the event. One goal is to add a civics lesson to the event. Another goal is to include something about the history of your community or region.
