Hi all,

I put that I might attend the tea party. The life of a grad student is crazy....especially when trying to finish my masters in a month. Also I want to make sure that everything is organized legally before committing to attending a demonstration. Any updates on what the status of the paperwork/permits and whether we need them?

I was able to go around the town of Belleville today and post fliers in stores and restaurants. No one refused, everyone I asked immediately posted the flier and showed interest. The response so far has been pretty positive.

John! Hey dude! So I have been brainstorming all weekend long...yesterday and today...and though I cannot make it to the Tea Party I have come up with some great ideas, at least what I think are great ideas, for the event itself! I need to actually write them down and add some detail to them but I would love to share them with you! Send me an email/ message with your contact info and I can forward them along. I have Monday off so I should be able to draft a Word Doc with everything to make it easier to read than the craziness that is my brain! :)

Since I can't attend the meetings on Thursday evenings and have said I will attend the Tea Party, I'd like to know what is being planned for it. Could somebody let the clueless among us know what's going to go on? THANKS.

I posted a pic - "Lipton Tea Party" which may make an interesting button for people to wear at the tea party. Let me know asap if there is enough interest in having the buttons and I will see if they can be manufactured soon enough.

Hi Ruth, we are currently working to find key speakers. We are going to have different people assigned to a principle or value and discuss how they have lived their lives according to that principle/value. We are going to hand out little flags to children, possibly have face painting for children. We will have a couple folks dressed up in a tea bag costume. We are going to hand out little 3x5 cards with the 9 principles, 12 values, and our website info and a tea bag stapled to each to hand out to people. Everything is still in the works but it's coming together. I will keep you posted and if there is anything you want to be more involved in just let me know.

I will talk about it on Froggy 101 during my AM newscasts, but I want to be sure the information is completely accurate before I go on the air with it, so if someone would contact me at, that would be great. I see that you guys are checking out permits, etc. So let me know when you have final word.

John. I don't see our tea party listed on We Surround Them Pennsylvania. ??
