The event will move to the banquet room at 5:00 where the Master of Ceremonies will begin the program. The Market proprietor will speak about the event and introduce local politicians. State Senator Bruce Caswell is the first politician who has committed to attend. Then, Hillsdale College President, or a Political Science Professor, will conduct a mini lecture. Finally, each table will read a few sentences of the Declaration of Independence

A pig roast will be served at 5:00 to the adults. Hot dogs and sliders will be available to kids. An oratory
