Editorial: Patriotic Day is worth celebrating


Farmington’s annual Patriotic Day celebration is a pretty remarkable event. At its core, it’s an opportunity for a community to pay tribute to its veterans, but it’s a lot more than that.

The event does a lot to bring Farmington residents together. It includes a free community meal that serves more than 1,000 people, providing residents a chance to sit down and eat next to someone they might otherwise never encounter.
