Push for a Better America’s 4th of July Picnic was a lot of fun under the shade trees across from the Fair Building. Just the right amount of shade and breeze on a warm summer day. Kinda reminded me of, “back in the day.”
We fed 75 people. I assume everyone got all they wanted to eat. Kudos to our chef, Merle Redman. Merle did a great job and we’re thinking about putting him on Full Time.
Our program got started at 6:00 p.m. with the invocation by Bob McClough. Flag salute and comments by yours truly. Larry Joslin spoke about our need to put conservative politicians in office and help retire liberal politicians, such as our President. Kenneth Blan spoke on our need to get control of the national debt.
Entertainment was provided by Dale Carter and his daughter LaRinda McClellan. They did a good job of playing and singing something for everyone.
Of course, as with anything the local Tea Party does, we couldn’t have pulled it off without volunteers and sponsors to help us out. And we definitely couldn’t have pulled it off without Judy Calhoun. Judy is that special person that makes things come together in spite of the obstacles. We appreciate you Judy.
Hope to see everyone at the next Tea Party meeting at at the 3rd annual picnic next year.
