“You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few
people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take
action.” - Anthony Robbins

Our great nation abounds with patriots who are willing to sacrifice their time, treasure and especially talents, to bring change to their country.
The FairTax movement is blessed to have many of these energetic patriots working as volunteers to transform America with the passage of the FairTax legislation.
We thought you would enjoy seeing some of these FairTax heroes who
deserve our gratefulness.
Here are some pictures showing a multitude of ways in which dedicated
FairTaxers help educate those in their communities about the FairTax!
The Florida FairTax Educational Association participated in "GeorgeFest" in Eustis, Florida, February 24-26. At
this 3 day event, they had a FairTax tent to educate the public and participated in the George Washington parade on Saturday morning.
At the request of the Lake Eustis area Chamber of Commerce, Rudy Treml, FairTax District Director for Central Florida, played the role of President Washington (above) while also supporting the FairTax effort!
One of the three FairTax vehicles in the parade was a 1932 Ford with FairTaxers David Hurley (owner) and Patti Wood in a
Statue of Liberty outfit.
This FairTax event was coordinated by Sue Hooper, FairTax Community Coordinator for Eustis and Assistant FFTEA Procurement Officer (above) - who also just happens to be the current Mayor of Eustis!

"The FairTax Flash is a great way to spread the FairTax message. Studies show that the normal individual must hear or see a message seven times before they “recognize” it. By combining the FairTax Flash with signs placed around the community, and the occasional radio ads or PSAs, the FairTax Flash is a media multiplier, making our other efforts just that much more effective.
And the FairTax Flash works with groups as small as five or six, although larger numbers are better. Just pick a place with a lot of public foot or vehicle traffic. Show up for about a half hour or so, and interact with the public as much as circumstances allow, and then disperse (often to get something to eat or drink.) You don’t even need to hand anything out, or try and collect signatures. Your presence is enough to help raise the public consciousness regarding the FairTax!"

Central Florida now has a pickup truck roaming the roads for FairTax! A big thank you goes to FairTax supporter, Wayne Carey, for his
efforts to construct the setup that holds two 4’ x 8’ mini-billboards and of course
the continuous use of his pick-up truck in the area. Besides the roaming
FairTax truck, Wayne has also erected three more mini-billboards on properties
he owns at major road junctions.
