The meeting came to order with Jack Bertron, coordinator, asked Joanne Boenig to say the prayer, followed by Ponch leading the pledge of allegiance.

Jack then spoke about how to get the young people interested in the tea party, therefore, we need to come up with new and creative ideas for this mock election. We also need tea party members to volunteer to man the tea party booth. 

Graven Craig went on to mention that they need, for the GOP,
volunteers to register people for voting, as well as, volunteers for Dave Brat and Donald Trump's campaigns. Graven also mentioned how we need to register to vote nursing home resident's, such as the Democrats have been successfully doing in prior elections.
