Robin Gracey of Hermitage, TN was the lucky winner of our Constitutional Kindle drawing at the Wilson

with her work and says it will make it easier to keep up with her notes and balance personal time with
work. Plus, the e-book reading capability of the Kindle will allow her to read books for work without
having to take the hard copy version with her when she travels. Our congratulations go out to Robin.
We would personally like to thank everyone who stopped by our Wilson County Tea Party booth at the
fair and entered in the Kindle drawing, bought a souvenir pin or pen or just took a couple of minutes
to share his or her view on the challenging political landscape we face in our country today. For
those of you we met for the first time we encourage you to come to our meeting on Sept. 22 or plan
on attending our annual dinner on Saturday, October 11 to see first hand what the Wilson County Tea
Party is all about.
