I was going to try to make it to D.C. for the event there, but since I can't, will come to this fantastic accumulation of people standing up for what's right for America and her citizens! The ship looks simply beautiful - thanks for bringing it!

This is going to be great fun with original music and an opportunity to get together with others to celebrate this magnificent country and the freedom we all enjoy!

I'll be there. Aside from a heartfelt affinity for tall ships, I think it is pretty important for "just plain folk" like myself to learn and participate in our political process. I look forward to this and seeing what it is all about.

This is a big deal for Vancouver, and for America. There will be hundreds of tea parties across this nation, and I sure don't want to miss ours. It isn't very often that our community has this kind of impact opportunity! Patriots, arise!

This will be an amazing event! With live music, Marine color guard and a great lineup of speakers. Come and see the ship, learn about our founding fathers our historical heritage and enjoy the music. You won't want to miss this one!
