Road Trip Rally

We are providing a charter bus to transport anyone interested in going to Tallahassee to join with other statewide PTA members, school board members, parents, and other organizations assembling on the backside of the Capitol near the Supreme Court Building. The rally will be held from 11 am through 1 pm on March 18th. From all over the state of Florida, other PTA units are bringing their local members, community parents and representatives of their school boards to Tallahassee. Legislators will be extended an invitation to come and speak at the rally by Florida PTA. SPACE IS LIMITED! WE DO WANT A FULL BUS

This is your opportunity to let your voices be heard! Polk County Council encourages all local PTAs, community members, parents and school personnel to attend or send representatives to help us send this message.

Please complete the registration, return along with your check or money payable to Polk County Council PTA by Feb 25th, 2009.
