Rally on Friday!!
We're just a few days away from the Defend the Constitution Rally, a historic event to be held at Harris Pavilion in Old Town Manassas, Friday, June 25th 2010 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. We are expecting a big turnout so make sure you come out and help us make some news!
And make sure you keep spreading the news to friends, family and co-workers! Make phone calls to people at your kids' school ... tell the neighbors ... print out a few fliers and pass them out ... tell them all to bring the whole family for a fun night.
Here are some important updates for the event:
COME A LITTLE EARLY: We strongly suggest you beat the last minute rush by getting to Old Town by at least 6:30 pm. Come as early as 6 pm and relax on the lawn, grab a bite to eat at the Chick-fil-A tent, enjoy the music and let the kids see the firetruck.
PARKING: There is lots of parking all around Old Town. There are the Manassas train depot parking lots, the Old Town parking garage, overflow lots down the street, the BB&T parking lot across the street and street parking back in the residential side of Old Town. All parking is free.
BRING YOUR OWN CHAIRS! This will be a very engergetic event and will likely have a lot of folks standing but if you want to sit, please bring a portable folding chair.
BRING SMALL FLAGS AND/OR SIGNS TO WAVE!
SPEAKERS: Along with Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Delegate Bob Marshall, Jamie Radtke and Sonnie Johnson, we are honored to have Dr. John Bruchalski, Manassas City Councilman Marc Aveni and VA State Delegate Jackson Miller all on the speakers platform Friday night, each addressing some aspect of the US Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the federal healthcare mandate, the lawsuit, the impact of "Obamacare" on the medical community and its patients and the Tea Party movement's vital role in our upcoming November elections.
REFRESHMENTS: Chick-fil-A sandwiches, chips, soft drinks and bottled water will be available for sale (Sandwich with chips - $4, drinks - $1). Part of the proceeds will go to benefit Manassas Tea Party.
MUSIC: A DJ wil be spinning discs from 6 pm to 7 pm. We'll be treated to classic rock from the 50s, 60s and 70s, country music, big band, and patriotic standards.
FOR THE KIDS: The Manassas Volunteer Fire Department will be on hand with a fire engine for the kids to get their hands on. Also, General George Washington will be on hand in full military regalia to meet the attendees and lead us all in the invocation.
RAFFLE: We will be raffling off two books Friday night. One is Sean Hannity's latest and is signed by Sean. The other is the book on Lincoln's Gettysburg Address by Jack Levin and it is signed by his son, constitutional scholar and radio powerhouse Mark Levin. Tickets are $1 each or free with a Manassas Tea Party registration (which requires a $10 annual dues fee -- forms available at the Rally).
OTHER STUFF: Manassas Tea Party will be selling their "Freedom is Brewing" Tea-Shirts for $15 apiece and taking pre-orders for the "Freedom is Brewing" bumper stickers at $3 apiece. Other vendors will be on hand selling American flags, Gadsden flags and Don't Tread on Me car flags. Organizations such as the Heritage Foundation, Defundit.org, NoVa Patriots Academy, Campaign for Liberty and numerous others will have booths as well.
We encourage you to stay afterwards and visit Mackey's American Pub in Old Town. Mackey's is a gracious sponsor of the rally.
COME HAVE A BLAST WITH YOUR FELLOW PATRIOTS! We'll see you on Friday night.
