Old Salem Museums & Gardens Hosts Meaningful July 4th Event

Posted on

About 100 candidates became citizens at Old Salem Museums & Gardens July 4th event this year! The ceremony, administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, featured a keynote address by Dr. Max Gomez, one of TV’s most respected medical journalists, and a naturalized citizen himself. Other activities throughout the July 4th day in Salem included a performance of the 1783 Psalm of Joy by the Moramus Chorale and Chamber Orchestra, a reading of the Declaration of Independence, rifle and musket firing demonstrations, a fire engine drill, and a late-afternoon procession around Salem Square – the same walk that the residents of Salem took during the first July 4th celebration in 1783.
