Founder's Quote, 5 July 2016

The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respectable Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges, if by decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit the enjoyment. - George Washington, Address to the Members of the Volunteer Association of Ireland — 1783
