There are tea parties, and then there are TEA Parties. Area residents can attend both varieties this summer.
Three elegant Victorian-style teas are planned this summer at the Grammes-Brown House. Tiffin Historic Trust volunteers are to host the events. The first, a Flower and Herb Tea, is set for 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. The next, a Musical Tea, at 12:30 p.m. July 13, is to feature a live performance. The final event, a Mystery Tea, is to begin at 12:30 p.m. Aug. 10, when guests can participate in a murder mystery.
There’s also the political activist type of TEA Party, with the acronym standing for Taxed Enough Already. A TEA Party group in our area, American Patriots Against Government Excess, intends to host an Independence Day rally at the Birchard Park bandstand in Fremont.
There is to be music at this TEA Party, too, beginning at 9:30 a.m. The program is to get under way a half hour later. State Rep. Rex Damschroder is to speak, and Dr. Jerome McTague from Physicians Choice Hospital plans to discuss the affects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on our health care system.
Petitions and information are to be available for the Ohio Project, which seeks to give Ohio voters the opportunity to decide at the ballot box on whether they want to opt out of a federal health care system.
Those petitions might not be needed. Senate Joint Resolution 1, introduced Wednesday by State Sen. Tim Grendell of Geauga County, would allow Ohioans to vote on a state constitutional amendment that would allow Ohioans to opt out of federal health care mandates spelled out in the national health care law.? But people still may want to go to the rally, which is to wrap up before noon. Ten copies of the book “Original Argument: The Federalists Case for the Constitution, Adapted for the 21st Century” are to be given away to those who attend.
