The Abingdon Tea Party is on for April 15.
The following email communication went out from the organizer of the shindig - Ted Dingler - last night:
After the fiasco with the town, it has now been settled and we will be having the tea party on April 15th at 6:30 pm. It will be at the Farmers market pavilion off of Cummings Street.Nice place to hold the rally, so you know. Lots of space for a large crowd.
If you are coming in from Rte 19, when you get to the intersection of Rte 19 and Rte 11 in Abingdon, turn left onto Rte 11 (Main Street). Stay on Main street. When you get to the post office (it will be on your right), turn right towards the old train station depot that is now the Washington County Historical Society and stay on this road. It will curve to the left and take you right to the farmers market pavilion.
Parking will be on your left.
I hope you can attend. If you have any other questions feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you think you are going to attend, would you let me know just so we can get an idea of crowd size.
Hope to see you there.Ted Dingler
If you live in the Abingdon area, your presence is requested. Your country deserves your being there. Your children, your grandchildren, as well. Let Washington County know how you feel about what the federal government is doing to their futures.
Unite. Let your voices be heard. I guarantee you, the local political establishment will be listening.
