Advanced Furnace & Air Duct Cleaning, Inc. wishes you and yours a Happy 4th of July!

On July 4, 1776, The Continental Congress declared that the 13 American colonies now regard themselves as a new nation, The United States of America, and are no longer a part of the British Empire!

John Adams wrote ( he was off by two days!):

”The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more”.

His words ring true today and for many years to come! We still celebrate with fireworks, barbecues, family reunions, sporting events, concerts and picnics.
This line in the Declaration of Independence is the most poignant line ever written and has been used in hundreds of speeches:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Happy Independence Day from the entire Staff at Advanced Furnace & Air Duct Cleaning, Inc.
