Penny McBroom was a woman on a mission. She had just come back from the Atlanta Tea Party with gal pals Wanda Dailey and Lynn McCollough and she was on fire.
'There is something dreadfully wrong with our country', she declared. 'We must stand up for God, country and our Constitution.' McBroom, a Barnesville resident, felt a calling from God. Inspired by the hymn 'Onward Christian Soldiers' she was determined to enlist an army of local volunteers to put together their own local Tea Party.
They did so and it will be held Labor Day, Monday September 7, at Ritz Park from 7 - 9 p.m.
