CBS has reported that a 16-year Philadelphia tradition will be broken this year.
Normally, the city’s Liberty Medal, for those who foster freedom, is given out on the Fourth of July. But since the recipient can’t make it then, a new date will be chosen.
Meanwhile, a different honour–the first City of Brotherly Love Humanitarian Award will be handed out. The recipient is Elton, and this will be part of the Independence Day ceremony at Independence Hall.
