Regarding Tax Day Tea Party
By Connie Emmert, Laura Antonsen, and Dick Coose
April 21, 2009
Thanks to all of you who came out to the sign waving Tax Day
Tea Party! It was a great turn out, and you were true patriots
for standing out there in the cold and wind. We and our
fellow tea party patriots across the country made history and
surely we have begun to make an impact in congress.
We would also extend our apologies
to those of you who would have joined us but didn't hear about
the protest until after the fact. Our decision to have
the party was made just a week prior and we didn't have enough
time or means to advertise better. We did have one ad in
the paper and in Sitnews as well as some fliers around town.
However, it wasn't enough to reach everyone. We promise
that we will be better organized next time.
There is still time to sign
the petition. It will be at Island Tile and Marble, 306
Main and at A Woman's Place, 355 Carlanna Lake Road through
Tuesday. Our thanks to these businesses for providing
a place to hold it until everyone has a chance to sign.
The Tea Party Patriots:
Connie Emmert, Laura Antonsen, and Dick Coose
