Touchmark Senior Living hosted an Independence Day celebration on Friday.

The parade featured residents gathering in front of the American flag, singing the National Anthem, and later parading around the facility with flags.

One Touchmark resident shared a story of patriotism for the 4th of July weekend.

“I'll tell you, living in Washington D.C., I used to round up all the kids in the neighborhood. Then, John Glenn came back from orbiting the Earth. I took about eight kids, that was before there were seat belts. I stuffed as many kids and we went down on that parade. So I've always been very patriotic," says Marjorie Holmgren.
