September 2 Meeting. New Locale. Exciting Agendaon September 2nd, 2010 at 7:27 am
Not only is it more attractive, comfortable and more conducive to our needs, but is also $100 less expensive for us to rent each month!
We’ll have information and reports about a number of items Thursday evening:
This past weekend’s bus trip to DC
October Tea Party convention in Richmond
Vetting of candidates for the November election
Freedom For Virginians Act – progress and roadblocks
Recent meeting with leaders from several regional Libertarian, Constitution and Republican groups to form a SW VA Patriots confederation
Here are two important pieces of information about our September 2 open meeting which have just now been confirmed.
Delegate Morgan Griffith will join us at Thursday evening’s meeting to speak briefly and take questions from our members and supporters. Griffith is running against Rick Boucher for the 9th District Congressional seat.
We are sure that many of you will have questions for Delegate Griffith as we prepare for the November elections.
Thanks to our friends with the Salem Tea Party for arranging this question-and-answer session with the candidate.
PLUS, we will have a video crew from Estonian Television on hand for Thursday’s meeting! They are preparing a documentary about the Tea Party, and hope to interview members and leaders of the Roanoke Tea Party.
The producer tells us that citizens of Estonia are confused about the Tea Party movement in the US, and he hopes to clarify that for viewers in this former-Soviet republic with his reporting. We are delighted to welcome them to Roanoke.
Thursday’s meeting will be held on September 2 at 6:30 pm at our new meeting location at the River’s Edge Ramada Inn in Roanoke.
The Ramada is located at 1927 Franklin Road, just south of the intersection with Wiley Drive, near the River’s Edge Sports Complex. We will meet in their new conference room; just enter the main lobby, and the conference room is to the back, and then left.
Please plan to join us on Thursday evening at 6:30 if you possibly can. Your presence always adds value to our meetings!
Thanks again to everyone who has supported the Tea Party in 2010.
