Call for Participants

How did we receive our heritage as a free nation?

The purpose of Heritage Day is to answer this question and to recognize the origins of our freedoms and to pass that special knowledge on to the future generations that come after us. Will we accept that sacred mission?

You might ask: isn’t that teaching being done in schools and pop culture?

Probably not very well and in fact the history of our nation is being distorted and our culture is being changed into the opposite of its original design with the goal to destroy our values. At this time we must take the responsibility to preserve our cultural and spiritual values in order to pass them on to the next generations.

Heritage Day is planned with the goal of remembering that precious inheritance and sharing it with those who attend as guests. This event combines learning, entertainment and the arts to create an atmosphere which is enjoyable for the whole family with activities for every age. At this time we are in the early preparation stages so it is not possible to list every activity at this event.
The planning committee welcomes your input because your group or individual project or business will become the piece of a larger event which is successful because of the adherence to the purpose of celebration of our American cultural heritage. This is a family event and all participants should structure their exhibit to be safe but also to encourage friendly interaction with visitors. All conduct should be in good taste so that even Aunt Bee and Deputy Barney Fife would approve.
This is a rain or shine event with some activities planned for outdoor fun.

What is a 20/20 Vision Event?

The ability to see clearly without distortion or confusion is necessary for natural physical sight but also in the symbolic sense. This event encourages preparedness for the challenges of the new decade.
