Wave the flag and raise the tea bags. Some area residents are getting ready for a patriotic celebration of our nation’s independence with just a bit of revolution thrown in for good measure.
Two public gatherings are planned in coming weeks at the Jeffers’ estate, 1823 Foothill Blvd., in La Cañada, in honor of Independence Day. Both events need reservations, and include music, speeches and activities for kids and adults, as well as catered meals, with hot dogs, hamburgers, and all the other trimmings of a traditional small town picnic.
On July 3, the Glendale Area Independence Tea Party is scheduled to occur from 3 to 7 p.m. This event is presented by Taxed Enough Already (TEA), the group that earlier this year met on the steps of Glendale City Hall — in conjunction with other TEA parties across the country — to let legislators know that many residents are feeling “taxed enough already.”
