American citizens celebrate our independence every 4th of July. This year, AmCham sponsored our first Independence Day party at Makindye Club on July 5th. Traditional foods such as hamburgers and hot dogs were available, as well as juice, sodas and plenty of beer. Children were able to enjoy activities such as face painting and jumping in the bouncy castle, and a live band played throughout the event. Raffle prizes included backstage passes to the Zoo, Whiskey, Hotel and Lodge stays, and a round trip ticket to Istanbul on Turkish Airlines.
