Gathering on the steps of the county court house after work.
These ladies asked, "How much do your kids mean to you?" There were a lot of dedicated mothers and grandmothers there that day. I overheard several mom-to-kid conversations explaining the different tax laws as they walked the block; cool!
One of the organizers of the event. I did not know when I asked for his photo! He was the first person I spoke to there.
The parade of protesters went around and around and around the court house block. Many people honked in support while driving by. We even got a semi to blast for us. A simple, relevant question. One of my favorite protester collages from the day. This lady was thrilled to have her photo taken. I think she thought I was press (oops!).
Standing in the shadow of the veterans' memorial.
I loved this older couple's hand drawn sign. They had a third member of their party, but she ran out of the picture! As Centennial Farmhouse's Joni would say, "What a stinker!"
Large shot of the crowd. There were actually about 150 more in the park across the street, which isn't seen in this photo. A duo of original colony flags.
With many more photos, I could make this post go on too long. I hope you enjoyed a taste of the tea party I attended.
If you were not able to attend a tax day party, remember there will be more to celebrate come July 4th. In the meantime, send photos and smaller version of protest signs to your congressmen. They DO read these and respond!
