Independence Day

July 4th will be the 243rd anniversary of our nation's independence where we celebrate our nation's founding and all of those who served our country in many capacities in both peace time and war. We live in a wonderful community and the DeKalb Outdoor Theater is proud to be a part of it for these eleven years. We thank all those who have supported us and especially thank all of the volunteers who help make things run smoothly every summer. This July 4th, we ask that you take a moment to reflect on DeKalb County and all of the good things that make this a great place to live, work and play.

By Kent

See you at the theater!!!
