We received this note from Emma Capps, our guest speaker at our July Picnic meeting with an update on her summer’s activities. Be sure to check out her YouTube links!
“I hope you have been enjoying your summer. I really enjoyed speaking to the Southside Virginia Tea Party Patriots. Thank you for letting me share my experience with the group. I also love wearing my blue T-shirt you gave me! (I even wore it in one of my YouTube videos – can you spot it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvxCyfL0Ibk)
I wanted to let you know that I uploaded a YouTube video about my experience at the National Teenage Republican Leadership Conference. Thanks to your generous contribution, as well as the other members of the Southside Virginia Tea Party, I had the opportunity to meet senators and congressmen on Capitol Hill, including Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan, spend time with friends who share the same values as me, and explore DC.
I also won two awards: Outstanding TAR in the Nation and Outstanding Website.
