With Independence Day falling on a Saturday, Sr. Mary Martin was the lucky sister in charge of the grill. It had been awhile since sister grilled, but everything came out wonderfully. And there are always sisters who stop by the kitchen to lend a hand. Since it is a recreation day the sisters can chat as they work.
We always end evening recreation by singing the National Anthem. Sr. Danielle and Sr. Maria were appointed to be the official flag holders.
After Compline some of the sisters climb up onto the roof to watch Summit's firework display. We can just see the fireworks between two of our trees. Some years we've counted up to thirteen different firework displays we could see from the roof. This year only seven were spotted, but Summit's finale was the better than its been in many years.
