“ I found out about the 912 Project via Google and thought I would attend a meeting to see what's up. I was very lucky to attend my first meeting with the bonus of an address by Ron DeSantis. What a treat. The moderator was a real professional and moved the meeting along and introduced Ron DeSantis. While at the meeting a nice gentleman informed me that there was a group in Winter Haven (where I live) that meets on Thursday nights. I was impressed with the number of people in attendance as I had assumed there would be 12 to 13 in attendance. There was more like 30 to 40 people. I am going to try to get to the Winter Haven meetup and see how that goes. ”

“ I found the group through FreedomConnector. After taking the family to Washington DC on 8/28 I new it was time to get back to basics, start local, and get involved. I felt it was about time to "grab the rope" so to speak and stop just talking about it. I see the "rope" as one that is tied around the heart of our country. It will take all of us to rescue it and drag it back from the edge! We found the folks to be genuine, with calloused hands from holding the rope. I found their TeaParty aspect (about 10% of their focus) to be the real deal! A state of heart and mind - not a co-opted political group! That was important to us. The hands-on 912 aspect of the group is something of a personal passion for me. I was a FF/Pmdc and know that, as citizens, we can make a big difference when the mini-911's happen in our community. I encourage others to grab the rope and pull! Together we can make a difference! If you're not holding on to the rope - you are just a cheerleader! ”
