Please go to the Links and email List page and sign up to be on the mailing list so we can make the next one bigger. For now watch the calendar for upcoming events and email me, alexanderofyork@yorkteaparty.org or the organizer team, organizer@yorkteaparty.org with your ideas.
We were in the papers and local calendars ahead of time like hamptonroads.com. And our friend Samieh Shalash of the Daily Press did a nice story that also was printed in the Boston Herald. Even though being a member of the Virginia Tea Party Patriot Federation was of little benefit to us and our event we may be able to use our experience to help make another event bigger and better.

How will we march this country away from tyranny back toward liberty?
