Tea Party Greets Patrick Henry

He will describe the obstacles he and the other Founding Fathers faced as they tried to build a country “conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” The members state that he will inspire people to work hard and dedicate themselves to this noble cause.

Comment For The Day
Stop by the shops in Chardon and around Geauga County that offer so many summer specials, including plants and produce.
The Fourth of July weekend was filled with wonders to amaze including Glory Day events on Chardon Square. The Geauga County Fair Band was also great on Friday evening. The fireworks on July 5 were some of the best ever. Super accolades go out to Dave J. for putting on a great show.
I was happy to attend four out of the five Ohio Chautauqua 2013 evening events held under the red and white striped tent in Madison. Featured historical figures included Margaret Blennerhassett, a British millionaire who transplanted to Marietta and then her own island; York, a slave who accompanied the Lewis and Clark expedition to the Pacific Ocean; Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, whose performance kept everyone enthralled for over an hour; and Johnny Appleseed, who humorously said he had 10 half-brothers and sisters. The shows will also be held in Rossford from July 9-13, Bexley July 16-20 and Coshocton July 23-27. All programs are free and open to the public. Call 1-800-293-9774 or visit OhioHumanities.org for more information.
