 Happy July 2018 Colorado Clerks!

142 years ago our forefathers declared independence from the evil tyrannical ruler King George III. Because of that we all get a day off of work and get to enjoy family, friends and most likely a barbecue. We also get to partake in the magic of fireworks! As you all know, where there are fireworks there are stories about fireworks and the 4th of July. Thinking about this led me down the path of thinking about the 47 previous Independence Day celebrations that I have experienced. Click more for some of the highlights from my favorite ones:
