Perriello Petition Presentation

April 30, 2009

The JATP has heard from Congressman Perriello’s office and we will be presenting him with the Jefferson Area Tea Party Petition on Friday May 8th. We’ll begin meeting at the Free Speech Monument by the Charlottesville Pavilion at 3:00 p.m., hold a brief rally at 3:30 p.m., and begin our march to Congressman Perriello’s office at 3:45 p.m. We are requesting that everyone forego protest signs so that the focus will be on the delivery of the petition but signs supporting our Constitution, our rights and our freedoms would be fine. This Jefferson Area Tea Party event is a great opportunity to keep the momentum going and to effect positive change in the direction of OUR country.

Event updates will be available here as they occur. As a reminder we have pocket constitutions available for a small ten dollar donation, proceeds which will go towards our next event. Donations can be sent to:

425 Cedar Grove Rd.

I just wanted to post a short note thanking everyone who attended the tea party. You are all true patriots that obviously love your country. You took the time to come out on a cold rainy day to show that your truly care about what is happening to the republic. Now it is up to us to keep this momentum going. Please keep watch for other events. There may be one coming up sooner then you may think. Check back in a day or two for further updates.

Again thank you and hold strong.

If It Rains We’re Covered!

April 13, 2009

I just wanted to remind everyone that this event is being held under cover at the Pavilion so even if it rains, come on down. We will be handing out small American flags to the first 250 people to show up. We should also have some pocket constitutions to hand out.

I would like to notify everyone that there may be people form other organizations passing themselves off as Tea Party organizers, they may try to ask questions and request personal information. Please note that anyone having anything to do with organizing the Tea Party will have a special identification badge, the only place that we will ask for information will be at the designated information tables. We will not be wondering through the crowd soliciting information from anyone.

Announcements will be made throughout the rally concerning this matter. We look forward to seeing everyone there.

Tony the owner of Chaps Ice Cream on the downtown mall has graciously offered his support for our Tea Party. He is helping to defray some of the costs involved in bringing this event to Charlottesville. If you are in the area stop in and have a dip of his renowned ice cream and thank him for his support.

Along with Tony, Greg Powell owner of Rivals Sports Bar & Grill has also thrown his financial support behind the Tea Party. Rivals on East Rio Road serves great food and adult beverages, a perfect place to meet after the rally, see you there.
