Muskogee Independence Day Tea Party Agenda

Greetings, fellow Patriots!

We will be holding our Tea Party at Civitan Park in Muskogee (3301 Gibson Street, across from the Oklahoma School for the Blind; click here for map). It will start at 10:00am, and continue until about noon. This is a family-friendly event (bring lawn chairs!), with music and speakers, as well as other various activities. Cookies and tea will be served.

  • Glen Wadsworth, local recording artist
  • Monty Baggett, local pastor
  • Barbara McAlister, internationally-acclaimed opera star and Muskogee native
  • Voter registration
  • Bake sale
  • Tea and cookies
  • High Striker
  • LIBERTY TREE Dedication and Planting
To help cover the cost of the event, we will be selling pocket copies of the Constitution for $1 as a fundraiser. In addition, we will have a carnival-style High Striker, for those who wish to show off (either their strength, or how mad they are at government's dangerously wasteful spending!) and help pay for the Tea Party at the same time!

Please help spread the word by emailing your friends and family!

    Good thing Mark Shannon wasn't there. You had representatives from two groups there -- Sooner Tea Party and Americans for Prosperity. Also, you had a state representative there. According to Shannon, these Tea Parties aren't about politics, they're about people. Had he been at your Tea Party, he'd be slamming it on the air right now, the way he is the Sooner Tea Party. That man is an enemy to liberty.
