Happy Independence Day! (*City Hall Closed*)

The staff (& Oscar too!) at the City of Ilwaco would like to wish this beautiful country a Happy 241st Birthday and YOU a fun & safe Independence Day!

**City Hall will be closed Wednesday, July 4th and will reopen Thursday, July 5th at 12:00pm**

It’s a great day to celebrate our nation’s independence with friends & family, for traditions old & new. It’s also a great a chance to teach the younger generations about the sacrifices made (& still being made) for our freedom. Here’s a link to the History Channel for a description of the holiday and other interesting factoids:
