A Tale of Two Citizenship Ceremonies

I don’t remember another time or event where I felt prouder to be an American, or more infused with a spirit of patriotism and love of country. July 4, 2016 was beautiful, hot, and sunny. Janice and I planned to spend it at the Genesee Country Village and Museum in Mumford, NY. – a recreated […]
