Tea party organization will offer more classes for children

TAMPA — After a successful summer experience, a tea party-affiliated organization is offering Saturday morning civics classes for children.

The Tampa 912 Project sent out a message announcing October sessions of its Tampa Liberty School in Carrollwood and Brandon.

"The school is dedicated to educating, enlightening, and exciting the youth of America, as to the fundamental principles and beliefs on which this country was founded," the notice said.

Classes run from 9 a.m. to noon at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Carrollwood and the Boys & Girls Club in Brandon.

Some of the principles taught:

• "Blending freedom and responsibility requires virtuous, moral and educated citizens."

• "Our inalienable human rights do not come from government leaders, but only from God."

• "Faith in God was fundamental to the founding of our country and the system provided."

More information is at tampalibertyschool.org.
