On July 4, 2018, George & Martha Washington and Paul Revere welcomed a group of patriots from Sons of the American Revolution, Daughters of the American Revolution, and interested local citizens at downtown Las Vegas to ring a replica of the Liberty Bell. There was a great program of Welcome by Gary Parriott, Blessing of the gathering by Alexx Green; Greeting on behalf of DAR by Katie Henzel; Observations on the Declaration of Independence by Janet Snyder, plus Bell Ringing by Everyone.

Terry Care from the Office of Congresswoman Dina Titus (NV-1) attended and was a great photographer. George Washington also took a lot of photos, along with others who wanted photos with Paul Revere, Betsy Ross, George & Martha Washington plus others in colonial attire.
