Being a Virginian and having learned at Mr Jefferson’s University in Charlottesville, we always welcome July the 4th.
A time to celebrate America’s independent spirit, its balsiness, and general pride in saying screw off to anyone who messes with us. 237 years ago, 56 men risked their lives, families, and fortunes to create these United States.
Every year at this time, I dust off one of my Jefferson tomes and read aloud those words that made the English quiver over two centuries ago.
Pursuit of Happiness
They still have incredible weight- It reminds us of why we created The Lodge. To celebrate what it is to be American and for us to support each other through trust, through commerce, and with style.
Happy Birthday America!
