Just a reminder; the next VC-TPP membership meeting will be held this Saturday, November 9, 2013 at the Evansville Public Library, Central Branch, 200 SE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., in Browning Room B at 1:00 p.m. Our guest speaker will be Erin Tuttle of Hoosiers Against Common Core and she will update us on the status of the battle across the state to keep the feds' hands off Hoosier education.
Common Core has been "paused" in Indiana by a law passed last session, although the state education director, Glenda Ritz, calls for "business as usual", contrary to the law's intent.
We ARE making progress, and people are waking to the harm that's been done already. Get parents to attend; many of them STILL don't have a clue as to what's happening to their kids...
Erin is an authority on this topic - this session WILL be very informative.
(VC-TPP is still looking for someone locally to defend Common Core in public...)
The Vanderburgh County Tea Party Patriots monthly meeting for October will feature Micah Clark, director of AFAIN (American Family Association of Indiana), as guest speaker. Micah will cover issues of importance facing Hoosier families in the coming state legislative session and other topics of concern to you and your children. There will be ample time for questions.
Also, Andrew McNeil, a candidate for the Indiana Eighth Congressional District, has asked to appear to introduce himself to our membership. He will announce his candidacy October 8, 2013 in his home town of Freedom, Indiana at 1:00 p.m. (EDST). You may find out more about Andrew and his background, his positions on various issues and his principles at http://andrewmcneilforcongress.com/
The date is Saturday, October 12, 2013 and the place is the Evansville Public Library, Central Branch, 200 SE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. in Evansville. The meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m.
A "Patriot Shivaree" will be held Monday, September 23, 2013 to welcome LST325 back to its home port of Evansville, organized by members of Vanderburgh County Tea Party Patriots. Those wanting to greet the LST will gather at approximately 11:00 a.m. at the foot of the Angel Mounds Boat Dock at South Lynn Road to await the arrival of LST325.
Bring Flags, "Welcome Home" signs, drums, whistles, old pots and pans with an old spoon to bang on them, and chairs to sit on. And bring your patriotic pride to welcome home the crew of LST325 with cheers and noise!
