Independence Day--Part II

With the power back on at 5:30 PM we were able to enjoy supper in the cool and comfortable community room. At recreation we sang Patriotic songs although Sr. Mary Cecilia kept asking us why we were playing "God Save the Queen!" Thereupon she and the other novices had a contest to see who could sing either God Save the Queen or My Country Tis of Thee the loudest. Happily, Sr. Mary Cecilia was drowned out!

After Compline the novitiate sisters once again climbed up to the upper roof to enjoy the firework displays. On Sunday night we counted 14 displays although we couldn't hear them! So, we welcomed all the bang! and boom! of Summit's fireworks which are getting harder to see because of the tall trees. Now, folks, if you would shoot them just a few feet to the left....
