How to Get Involved:
We are all here because we have been watching our county going further down the wrong path. The time to stand up for what you believe in is NOW.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
You can help us in one of many ways. The simplest way is to educate your self and become aware of what is going on. More than anything we need people that are willing to take the next step, people that are ready to take action. We need your hands, feet, and mouths to donate time. Here is a list of things you can do:
1. Attend our regularly-scheduled meetings in Cecil County- We meet the first Thursday of every month in the Senior Center at the County Administration Building at 200 Chesapeake BLVD in Elkton. It is important to stay connected and hear directly from members of the community, from our elected officials, and anyone else that has important information to share. Share your ideas with the group.
2. Donate your time.
Participate in events or volunteer. Events are listed on our EVENTS
page. We go to rallies, attend tea parties, participate in petition drives, and stand out on corners. We attend commissioner meetings and public hearings. We need to show up in force to get our message out. We can always use one more person. Write letters to the editor, articles for our monthly newsletter, or help plan one of our events. We need people to advertise our meetings and events- share them on your Facebook page or distribute flyers. We are always busy and ALWAYS need volunteers. One hour per month of your time makes a big difference!
3. Donate money. Everything we do is funded by our grassroots volunteers; the more funding we can get, the more events we can attend; the more fliers and advertisments we can get printed; and the more our message can get out.
4. Educate yourself on the issues.
On our homepage we have various news feeds relating to local, state, and national issues. Attend local meetings- The council meets each Tuesday at 9 AM for weekly work sessions and every other Tuesday evening at 6 PM for Citizen's Corner where you can ask questions of the council and at 7 PM for the public council meeting. Meeting dates, times, agendas, as well as audiorecordings of previous meetings are available at http://www.ccgov.org/meetings/index.cfm
5. Share information/Network with others.
6. Be vocal: contact your Legislators; submit letters to the editor; and display lawn signs. Create awareness by speaking to your family, neighbors, friends, and co-workers. Overcome political correctness – don’t be afraid to speak out! The challenge this generation faces is probably the greatest “crisis” since the Revolution and demands bold, fearless, and unwavering participation from our patriotic citizens. We all gain strength and inspiration from one another; let’s forge ahead with one voice, one vision – Protect Our Constitution!
Please copy and distribute to your community. Reach out to at least one person you know this week and invite them to visit our website and/or come to our next meeting. Also, there are outreach letters directed at segments of the population who may want to join our efforts: Veterans & Neighbors. Please copy these and distribute them in your environment: your neighborhood, PTA meetings, small businesses you frequent, clubs or other organizations in which you participate, etc. Newsletters are also available; copy the latest newsletter to begin dialogue with your neighbors about current local, state, and national issues.
Remember we are a grassroots organization, so everything we do starts with YOU getting involved.
