Happy Independence Day!

We wish you all a safe and joyful Independence Day! Perhaps we will see many of you at the forty-third annual Colchester Independence Day parade. The parade will begin promptly at 11:00 a.m. at Creek Farm Plaza, proceeding down Main Street, and it is expected to last approximately one hour.

Fun Fact (Part I): According to the United States Census Bureau, at the time the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress, there were an estimated 2.5 million people in the newly established nation. Now, 236 years later, the country’s current population is estimated at 313.9 million.

Fun Fact (Part II): While we do not have official census records dating back to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the 1791 census report indicates a population in Colchester of just 137. Our current population? Approximately 17,000!
