Tea Party Meetings

The Venango County Republican Committee and the Venango County Tea Party are separate organizations. Not all Tea Partiers belong to or agree with the Republican Party, and not all Republicans belong to or agree with the Tea Party. However, since the Tea Party and the Republican Party have many values and members in common, the Venango County Republican Committee seeks to maintain a good working relationship with the Tea Party. For the information of those who are or would like to be members of the Tea Party, the Tea Party meets the fourth Saturday of each month at King’s Family Restaurant, 821 Allegheny Boulevard. Breakfast starts at 8:00 a.m. and the meeting starts at 9:00 a.m. The location may be changed if attendance becomes too large for King’s to accommodate. For more information, call Jane Richey at 671-7110.
