What Are Your Fourth Of July Plans? Here Are Ours!


Independence Day is coming up, and it’s a great time to reflect on—and express gratitude for—all of the precious freedoms we enjoy every day.

It’s also a great holiday for enjoying time with friends and family, and to get involved with the awesome celebrations the community puts on.

We Asked Our Team, “What Are Your 4th Of July Plans?”


“We will be at the lake! Me and my hubby love to take the kids boating and wake surfing.”

Dr. Moore:

“Our plans usually consist of going to Table Rock Lake and watching fireworks over the lake. We plan on continuing the tradition again this year. Always a good time!”


“My dad’s whole family always gets together on the fourth and our tradition is that we always have homemade ice cream. Usually three different people make it so it’s always fun to taste test and see who made the best that year. There is usually a volleyball game after.”


“RV’ing it to Table Rock Lake!”

Dr. Burton:

“I set off the night time displays of fireworks for my family with my boys and nephews help. I love fireworks!!”


“We traditionally have family & friends over to our house for a BBQ, homemade ice cream and, of course, fireworks! We have made many great memories. One of which was when my youngest son was shooting off bottle rockets and caught his whole bag of fireworks on fire. Everyone was running for cover as bottle rockets were shooting everywhere! Thankfully, the worst thing that happened was my niece’s shirt got a burn hole in it.”


“This year I’ll be watching fireworks off a boat at the lake.”
