This past Saturday marked the largest rally to date for Walsh Freedom as Joe and Helene Walsh hosted over 1500 patriots Saturday at their Lake County Farm. Joe Walsh is a former congressman and host of a syndicated radio show on WIND 560-AM.
The event included a political rally, music, dancing, pot luck picnic & barbecue, and a huge fireworks show. The event was organized by Barbara Hinks Babbey with the help of a huge team of volunteers. The next rally here is tentatively scheduled in early September.
The family picnic included elected officials, candidates, and regular concerned Americans. Highlights included the singing of the National Anthem, Proud To Be An American, and God Bless America. At sundown there was a huge bonfire and a sensation fireworks show set to patriot music. The conservative movement is alive and well in Illinois and continues to grow.
This Tuesday June 14, 2016 is Flag Day. With the state of current events here, flying the American Flag on Tuesday and every day seems more important then ever.
