If you live in my neck of the woods be sure you're making plans to attend the July 4 Sheveport-Bossier Tea Party/Freedom Celebration.
The location will be the same as the very successful Tax Day tea party - the Bossier Civic Center lawn. Be sure to bring lawn chairs or blankets and make an evening of it. Organizers have a great line up of speakers planned, including the fabulous CL Bryant who spoke at the Tax Day tea party. Louisiana Outlaws will again provide the music and you'll be able to see the Riverfront fireworks display as well. There will be concessions and restroom facilities this time. A voter registration table will also be available, should you need to register to vote! There will also be a booth where you can write to your politicians and have your letter mailed for you.
The Tax Day tea party was a great success and attendance was much higher than anyone anticipated. I personally spoke to lots of people that drove in from neighboring towns and communities to attend.
Don't forget to bring signs! Organizers are making a DVD of the event and will also be conducting interviews with attendees.
There's plenty of free parking and it promises to be a great event, so mark your calendar and come on out.
You can stay volunteer to help or just stay current here, at the SBTea Party website.
