It's finally here: Our 10/10/10 Rally! The forecast looks amazing. Our program is set. This will be a highly informative event covering all sorts of timely topics designed to educate, challenge and motivate us all to do our part in making an indelible mark on our nation's history.
We're discouraging signs so that those who are bent on disparaging our movement and trying to marginalize our event will have little or nothing to distract from the main message in words and music from the stage. So, bring a lawn chair, a friend, a neighbor and your patriotic fervor. And let's commit ourselves in unity to the higher cause of restoring America to her unprecedented greatness.
10/10/10 Rally, Sunday!
4pm - 6pm on Jefferson Square

Also, there will be a petition on hand to restore the right of Jefferson County Public School students to attend their nearest neighborhood school. Please come by our booth and sign it. It will be presented to State Senator Dan Seum and David Williams, the co-sponsors of a Bill designed to accomplish just that.
Patriotic and celebrational music will be provided by Louisville's own acappella vocal band,Water's Edge. And theOver-Reactorswill take the stage as well. Please join us for this afternoon of education and inspiration. And leave even better equipped to make a difference...as informed Americans!
Booth Space for Organizations & Campaigns are available. Merchandise booths willnotbe made available at this event. Why? The cost of the event is not unsubstantial and so we encourage you to visit our own booth where there will be patriotic flags, buttons, bumper stickers, bracelets and T-shirts. They make a distinctive statement and help us to fund events such as these. Thank you!
