Cincinnati SAR Immediate Past President Jack Bredenfoerder served as member of the SAR National Color Guard at the July Fourth “Let Freedom Ring” celebration in Cerritos, California. The National Color Guard presented the Colors to a crowd of about 2,500 people. President General Warren Alter offered a welcome greeting then a mini replica of the Liberty Bell was rung thirteen times in honor of our first thirteen states. Earlier in the day, the community experienced a 4.0 aftershock from a 6.4 earthquake in the Mohave Desert. Compatriot Bredenfoerder was actually driving across the desert at the time of the quake, but didn’t notice the movement due to the motion of the car. It was definitely a “California” July Fourth experience to remember and feel grateful for in many ways!
