Helena, Montana Rally a Great Success!

So sorry for the delays in posting about our Montana events. The good news is that the cause of the delay is that we are so unbelievably busy. So many great things are taking place and we'll be reporting on them here at this blog and via our email udpates.

We started the day in Helena, MT and weren't sure what to expect in terms of a crowd. The drive up to our venue - at the Lewis & Clark County Fairgrounds - was stunningly gorgeous.

We pulled in and saw a parking lot full of cars adorned with patriotic bumper stickers, American flags and the Gadsden flag ("Don't Tread on Me"). So we had an inkling at that point that things were going to be good.

The crowd was large, festive and passionate in their love for this county and our Constitution. Eric Olsen of the Billings tea party organization was on hand, and he was exceedingly gracious. We had originally hoped to stop in Billings to hold an event but had to move our schedule, which meant Billings was dropped. Nonetheless, in good faith he helped get the word out and showed up at our event in Helena, and then later in the evening in Bozeman.

Here are some pictures from our Helena rally:
