Our potluck dinner tonight was wonderful! Though Arlene Wohlgemuth of the Texas Public Policy Foundation was not able to be our speaker, Cindy Mallete, Grassroots & Communications Director of Americans for Prosperity—Texas volunteered to step in and take her place. Thank you, Cindy!!
Cindy spoke on the Healthcare bill being discussed in Congress, its potential economic impacts, and free market alternatives to it. Her talk generated some great questions and discussion! This is what a meeting of a grassroots organization is about—sharing our ideas, learning from one another, meeting new people and walking out energized and ready to continue the fight.
We heard from several people who attended the huge 912 Tea Party in Washington D.C. What excitement they expressed! What I remember most was how they each were so impressed by all the people they met there, from all over the country, not working for any organization, just standing up for what is right. Thank each of you for going, and for sharing!
We heard a fabulous poem (yes, you read that correctly!) read by Cathy McIntyre. My husband tried to record this poem with his little video camera, so we will try to get that posted here if we can. You will love it!!
Thank you all so much for coming. Thank you to everyone who brought food. Thank you to everyone who ate some food! And for those who couldn’t make it, there will be more!
