Thank you for inquiring about the Lincoln Tax Freedom Tea Party
Saturday, April 11
1:00 – 3:00 PM
State Capitol Building
1445 K St.
Please bring cans of Pork & Beans to show your distaste with all of the out of control spending by politicians and to do some good. All collected canned goods will be donated to a local food pantry.
I understand that there has been some confusion regarding the information \"out there\". This is one of the issues currently being dealt with. A number of entities have taken it upon themselves to portray that they are \"official sponsors\" of all the Tea Parties in the country and are sending out information on the behalf of local organizers without checking with them in any way. This kind of situation is difficult to control.
It would be helpful if you are on Facebook to RSVP (on the Event page), to give some idea of the number of possible attendees.

**If you are not on Facebook and are planning to attend the event, it would be VERY helpful if you would send an RSVP to this email account **WITH** the subject line \"RSVP YES April 11\". Please do not include other information within that particular message. I will use a filter for those to a folder to keep a running count**
Some arrangements being made with folks at the Capitol are dependent upon a good estimate of attendance. I would greatly appreciate your help in attempting to get some kind of estimate, thanks.
In addition to the Facebook group and event, I have created a blog specifically for the Lincoln area as well:

Be sure to see the attachments to this message. I have included both a printable flyer and a business-sized card for your use should you desire to invite people to attend. Obviously, that is one of the best ways in which you can help.
