2nd Annual Tax Day Tea Party

April 9, 2010

You are invited to the Jefferson Area Tea Party’s second annual Tax Day Tea Party on Thursday, April 15, 2010. We’ve planned a great event, and have allotted plenty of time to hear from you! Here the schedule of events:

Main U.S. Post Office Facility (1155 Seminole Trail, Charlottesville, VA), 4:00-6:00 p.m.

Golden Corral Steakhouse (1185 Seminole Trail, Charlottesville, VA) , 6:00-7:30 p.m.

At the afternoon event at the U. S. Post Office, you and hundreds of Tea Party Patriots will recognize that we are Taxed Enough Already-– how appropriate on Tax Day! Several speakers will speak to patriotic, Constitutional, and pro-American themes. Participants including you will be given the opportunity to speak at the event to express your personal opinions on the direction of our country.

You are encouraged to bring signs expressing your views on the current state of the union (please ensure they are appropriate for public display). And to make it worth your effort, judges will select the best signs in several categories!

At our evening event, Patriots are invited to a Dutch treat dinner at the Golden Corral Steakhouse. Additional speakers will share their perspectives, and the sign contest winners will be announced.

You are encouraged NOT to park at the post office facility, but rather in the far / remote lot of the Golden Corral Steakhouse, which is a short walk to the post office facility.

Tell a friend
Bring someone
Be a Patriot!

Here is a link to a pod cast of the conversation,
