Flags Across the City
Do you have a couple of hours of free time for Friday morning? Let’s help distribute some American flags around town for our fallen heroes? Wouldn’t you like to be a part of that? Then please come, they could use our help and we will be blessed by it.
For the first time, our office is organizing a small event to distribute 600 small American flags to neighborhoods around our city, in advance of Memorial Day. Volunteers will place them in the ground next to each mailbox in pre-determined neighborhoods. We hope to grow the scope and size of this event each time we do it (perhaps again for the 4th of July??).
Will you please let the Tea Party know of the volunteer opportunity THIS Friday (5/27)? We are meeting at our office (between La Caretta and CVS on Langhorne, 2255 Langhorne Road) at 8:30AM on Friday to team up and carpool to the neighborhoods (I might have some donuts!!). We’re asking everyone to wear red, white, and blue and comfortable shoes. We have the flags and neighborhood maps. It’s our hope to be finished no later than 11:30AM.
Scott and I greatly appreciate you sharing the opportunity to honor our fallen heroes with the Tea Party.

This will be a full plate with George Caylor sharing some history with his original Flintlock rifle which he still uses to bag a dear today. Maybe you heard him this morning on WLNI talk about all of this and our Candidate Forum. Hope you all can come and check it out. I think you will find this event very welcoming.
