An open invitation:
BILL OF RIGHTS DAY CELEBRATION
Sat., Dec. 15, 2007, at 2 p.m. in Scottsdale, AZ (and elsewhere nationally).
SPECIAL THIS YEAR!
Spend a little time enjoying what makes America great!
Celebrate your rights.
Join people all over the country who will break bread with their neighbors, and as a group read the Bill of Rights, on the day it was ratified in 1791.
We will read the original Bill of Rights out loud from a parchment copy, and then jointly discuss its health in roundtable style. Is it working? Are our rights intact? What are the threats to the precious rights we hold dear? What are the prospects for the future?
This is the 6th year in a row that Arizonans have gathered to recognize and honor one of the most important concepts ever created. Join us. It's free. You will remember this experience for a long time to come.
The luxurious Scottsdale Plaza Resort is graciously providing the use of their ballroom for this special event:
Sat., Dec. 15, 2007, at 2 p.m.
Joining us again for the Bill of Rights reading will be Dr. Lance Hurley who, in full period dress, will deliver a short speech as Patrick Henry. After the Bill is read aloud from a parchment facsimile, we will have a public discussion to explore the Bill's current health, the challenges freedom faces today, and ways we can help advance the noble causes our Founding Fathers set in motion more than two centuries ago. When we're done, we can retreat to the nearby tavern and keep going.
There is no charge to attend the Bill of Rights reading and discussion at 2 p.m..
