The Young at Heart group from Bethlehem United Methodist Church in Advance hosted its annual Independence Day Celebration on July 4 at the church picnic shelter.

The American flag was presented by the church’s Boy Scout troop, Davie Sheriff J.D. Hartman led the Pledge of Allegiance, Commissioner Benita Finney sung the National Anthem and Chief District Judge Jimmy Myers spoke about the price paid to gain our country’s independence.

Those attending enjoyed a covered-dish dinner with desserts and homemade ice cream. DJ Barry Rentz entertained.

Many of those attending donated hygiene products to Storehouse for Jesus as part of Young at Heart’s ongoing effort to assist that program’s clients. The afternoon’s festivities concluded with a release of red, white and blue balloons in honor of U.S. Military personnel and in memory of all who sacrificed their lives to give us the freedoms we enjoy.
