To the Editor: Come to Stockholm Inn for discussion and lunch
I thoroughly enjoyed Genevieve Sandona’s Feb. 10-16 column, “Lithuanians in Rockford.” James Spelman (Letter Ed., “All creeds urge humans to respect each other”) gave Bernard Reese a bum rap, I thought, for Reese’s Jan. 16 Register Star guest column on America as a Christian nation.
To hear Attorney Reese speak briefly on the religious freedom case he argued before the Supreme Court, “The Cross in the Desert,” come to the Saturday, Feb. 20 Tea Party Town Hall at Stockholm Inn, 2420 Charles St. The cost is $13 ($20 a couple) for a luncheon of roast chicken or Swedish pancakes. The event runs 8:45 a.m.-4 p.m. with 15 separate presentations on topics, most limited to 7 minutes, a few up to 20 minutes. Plenty of time has been reserved for attendees to address questions and comments to the speakers.
Topics are as diverse as the Global Warming Scam, Principles of Liberty, Planned Parenthood, Fighting Governor Quinn’s 67 percent tax hike, Reforming Illinois politics, and What the VA system tells us about ObamaCare. Reservation deadline is Feb. 17/ Call Sharon at (815) 964-8865. A new Tea Party group will meet at 6:30 p.m. in Roscoe, Thursday, Feb. 25, at Sophia’s Restaurant, and all are welcome!
