The Independence Day Association of Greenwich presented another unforgettable ceremony on the morning of the Fourth of July. Over 400 Greenwich citizens and guests watched a Betsy Ross flag being raised by the Honor Guard of the Boys and Girls Club, was Boy Scouts and Police Explorer Scouts parade the flags of the original 13 colonies, and thrilled to the music of the Sound Beach Community Band. Flags waved as Boy and Girl Scouts read excerpts of the Declaration of Independence -- and the Children of the American Revolution led the Pledge of Allegiance.
