Ring the Sun City bell for freedom

Posted

That bell residents hear Monday, July 4 will be tolling in Sun City celebrating the nation’s birth.

The annual Ring That Bell ceremony is scheduled 9 a.m. Monday, July 4 in the social hall at the Bell Center, 16820 N. 99th Ave. The event will include a program with a patriotic theme, songs, flag presentations and a picnic and other activities.

Sun City resident Joseph Delgardo, portraying Uncle Sam, will serve as the master of ceremonies.

Following the program, attendees will have a chance to ring the replica Liberty Bell in the courtyard outside the social hall. The bell was created to celebrate the country’s bicentennial and was made from scrap metal collected from Sun City residents.

The activities will continue at 11 a.m. with an indoor “picnic.” During this portion, free bowling, shuffleboard, billiards and darts will be available. For the picnic, George’s Cafe, inside Bell Center, will offer barbecue pork sandwiches served with chips and bottled water for $8 per person. Donations collected will benefit the Sun City Foundation, including $1 from each lunch purchased.

Ring, Sun City, bell, freedom
