Liberty Day & Conference

What a great way to spend a Saturday! We'll get a full report and more pictures up when we get the pictures from our photographer. In the mean time, be it known that it was absolutely fantastic!

The conference was great and Dr. Jehle was wonderful. Starting with Genesis 1:1, he moved forward from there discussing principles of government, the constitution, and history articulately - educating and inspiring young and old alike. For those of you who weren't there, I'll add that Josh did record the sessions and you really ought to hear it!

Then came the evening. Despite a handful of glitches that had certain ones of us holding our breaths, it was again a fabulous time! It was our 8th annual Liberty Day celebration and, from reports we hear, better than ever! It's always hard to judge just how it went when one knows every little thing that didn't go exactly like it was supposed to. But still, it was a very fun evening and the eloquence of Dr. Jehle and Patrick Henry stand as complimentary rivals for the status of "highlight of the evening."

The room was packed! The chairs were full, and the back and sides of the room were lined with additional attendees! In addition to the 450 who attended the conference during the day, another 100 or so showed up just for the evening!

Those of you who were unable to join us, we wish you could have been there! You missed a really wonderful day. Some small comfort may be found for you in a quick email to Josh who also recorded certain items from the evening...

Those who were there - we'd love to hear what you thought! Leave a comment here, or here, or you can email us, too!

You are correct--it was a wonderful conference and delightful evening event!

We came away with much to contemplate regarding the constitution and our place in the community.

Thank you for all your work. We were exhausted, so I can only imagine how tired your family must have been. I hope you have a few days now to rest up. Thanks again!

Agreed! You did a great job putting together a great conference and evening event. Dr. Jehle, the debate, the music, everything that went into it made for the excellence of the day and bespoke much hard work! The prelude and postlude music was great.

By the way, don't let those Erberanteys drink too much Mountain Dew. :-)

Encore! Encore!! :oD

The conference was superb. Liberty Day was wonderful. Josh was eloquent.

We were taught the fundamentals, roused to action, and encouraged to celebrate. Learning and dancing should always be so juxtaposed. :o)

I can't even begin to tell you the sorrow I felt about missing such an incredible event! And to top it all off...we could have spent time with some of out favorite people, you guys! We would love to get some of those tapes, I'll have to e-mail you.

P.S. I thought you weren't allowed to have so much fun without us :)
