12 Score Ago… Roselle Park’s Independence Day Celebration

240 years old – or 12 score if you use the words of President Lincoln. That is how old America turned on Monday. On Sunday, ZIP code 07204 threw a little get together and lit some firework candles to commemorate our nation’s birth.

Families, friends, neighbors as well as visitors gathered and sat and looked into the night as the darkness that set in was set aflame with a 20-minute show of explosions in the sky. Children laughed and everyone smiled and forgot their troubles for a while, courtesy of Roselle Park.

No one left disappointed as one of the nation’s children, a little town in Union County, wished its parent a happy birthday.
