We got there a bit early. The program was to start at 3pm. Doug Lindgren gave the welcome address. Diane Johnson sang the National Anthem. Doug led the Pledge of Allegiance. Barb Chervestad (the main organizer) gave an address titled "What's the Tea Party All About?" I read the Preamble and some of the Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. Tom Schafer read a "Declaration of Grievances." There were several other scheduled speakers. There were also many who came to the open mike.
Mary made signs for our kids based on the Preamble.
"A more Perfect Union"
"The Common Defense"
"Promote the General Welfare"
"Secure the Blessing of Liberty For"
not "Rob From"
