The general public will be able to “Celebrate Freedom for Free” this year on the 4th of July, with no admission charge to Independence Day at Fort Vancouver presented by Bank of America. It will be “all about the fireworks,” according the Fort Vancouver National Trust.

While in the past this was a full day event, attendees are encouraged to come for the evening, claim their spot on the lawn, and enjoy a variety of vendors and live music starting at 6 p.m. in anticipation of a spectacular fireworks show at 10 p.m.

“After conducting an assessment of the event’s structure and costs, and reviewing feedback from participant surveys, the Trust recognized that the fireworks show is the element most valued by the community. We’re focusing on that - giving our audience what they most want,” said Trust President & CEO Mike True.

Eight Clark County residents have been nominated for the General George C. Marshall Adult Leadership Award, and 22 Clark County high school seniors have been nominated for the General George C. Marshall Youth Leadership Award. The two 2017 award recipients will be announced at a ceremony at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 22 at the Providence Academy. The keynote speaker at this year's General George C. Marshall Leadership Award ceremony will be Washington Lieutenant Governor, Cyrus Habib. Tickets are available at www.fortvan.org/marshallawards.

The Marshall Adult & Youth Leadership Awards, honoring the legacy of General George C. Marshall, are sponsored by Riverview Community Bank and organized by the Fort Vancouver National Trust as one of its many Celebrate Freedom programs. This is the 17th year honoring the youth in our community and the 28th year honoring adult leaders. From 1936 to 1938 when Marshall lived in Vancouver, he was a Brigadier General and served as Commander of the 5th Infantry Brigade at Vancouver Barracks. During World War II, Marshall served as the Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army. He was Secretary of State (1947-1949) and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on the Marshall Plan, which helped rebuild the economies of Europe and the Pacific nations after the war.

"General Marshall's contributions to our world, nation, and region provide a lasting example of selfless service and leadership that are in high demand today. His characteristics of honesty, integrity, strong work ethic and humility set an inspirational framework for the leaders of today and the up and coming leaders. This year, we received several outstanding candidates from across Clark County that exemplify some of the traits of General Marshall. It is inspiring to see the talented and capable leaders that live and work here in Clark County," said Phil Haberthur, chair of the Marshall Public Leadership Award selection committee.
