While the pandemic is affecting how we can celebrate the founding of the United States, we hope you will be able to enjoy your own Independence Day weekend. At Marine Mills Folk School we’ll be using the time to have fun with family and friends in a responsible, physically distant way. An outdoor picnic with grilled burgers and ice cream sounds pretty darn good, doesn’t it? We’ll also take some time to acknowledge both the things in America we are grateful for, and those things that need our attention and efforts to improve, especially structural racism and police violence which have been brought to our attention front and center. We invite you to do the same.
