The History of Heritage Day
The progenitor of Heritage Day, Oysterponds native-son Augustus Griffin,
began a tradition of the reading of the Declaration of Independence every July 4th.
Many years later, that simple ceremony has grown into Heritage Day,
an annual celebration where the community comes together.
