Happy Independence Day!
Midland County Habitat for Humanity offices and Midland County Habitat for Humanity ReStore will be closed July 2nd – July 4th in observation of the Independence Day Holiday. We will open on Tuesday, July 5th at 9am.
Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a U.S. federal holiday celebrating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Declaration was the declaring of our independence from Great Britain.
Congress established Independence Day as a holiday in 1870, and in 1938 Congress reaffirmed it as a paid holiday for federal employees. Today, communities across the nation mark this major midsummer holiday with parades, firework displays, picnics and performances of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and marches by John Philip Sousa.
Enjoy your holiday and celebrate our nation’s independence.
