The Saints in Arvada, Colorado, celebrated Independence Day 2022 in style! On Saturday, July 2, families and friends gathered early for a 5k fun run and afterward were joined by many others for a patriotic program, followed by breakfast and games.
Attendees enjoyed an uplifting a capella rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” sung by local church members James Suckow, Roger Gallup, Darin Powers and Tyler Stoehr. Church member Kelly Jensen then spoke about her experiences as a US Navy child, wife, and mother.
Two local civic leaders, Colorado State Representative Brianna Tittone and Jefferson County Commissioner Tracy Kraft-Tharp, accepted the Arvada Stake’s invitation to join in celebrating our nation’s birthday! It was a great opportunity for members of the church and their elected representatives to get to know one another and celebrate together.
