912 Fourth of July Gathering
Ed Fulop’s great idea for a 4th of July event combining breakfast and a patriotic service worked out wonderfully.
Over 30 912ers and guests took over 4 tables in the Original Pancake House on Northlake for some camaraderie and an excellent and reasonably priced breakfast. In attendance were quite a few candidates, including Joe Budd (CD19) with his wife Sherry, Mike Lameyer (FS27) and his wife Karen, Francisco Rodriquez (FH83), and the recently announced candidate for County Commission district 2, Sherry Lee. Also joining the fun was PBCGOP chairman Sid Dinerstein.
Following breakfast, the group moved down Northlake to the Christ Fellowship Church complex for an hour of patriotic themed services, highlighted by Pastor Tom Mullins history lesson about the faith of the founding fathers and the “Black Robe Regiment” – the pastor/soldiers of the revolution that led their congregations against the British. Pastor Mullins was on the Glenn Beck TV show this week. The service also contained a salute to the troops and a multimedia presentation about America as the hope for the world.
