Featured Speaker Tim Tinglestad, former candidate for Minnesota Supreme Court, will be speaking on returning our country to the three core values mentioned in the title of the event.

There will also be an introduction to the Alexandria Lakes Area Tea Party for those who wish to learn more about what they do, what they stand for, and why they formed.

According to Co-Chair Sandy Jackson, "'We the people' are responsible for the state of our nation. It is time to set complacency aside and actively become involved in the issues and the preservation of our freedoms. Involvement in the Alexandria Lakes Area Tea Party gives us the platform to influence the direction we want our nation to go. We are the stewards of the freedoms that we have been blessed with; we must preserve them for our children and grandchildren. We hope all Americans will be actively involved and we invite them to come and see what we are all about."
