Governor Palin will speak in Bucks County, PA on November 9th at a fundraiser for Plumstead Christian School.
Via Buck's Local News:
Former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is scheduled to speak at Plumstead Christian School’s Founders Forum on Tuesday, Nov. 9.Governor Palin draws a crowd and brings inspiration no matter where she speaks or what the topic. However, when she has the opportunity to speak about faith and her own personal testimony, it's even more powerful and encouraging. Those gathered will, no doubt, be enriched by the Governor's remarks.
Gov. Palin will briefly speak to elementary, junior high and high school students in the afternoon, followed by a fundraising dinner for the benefit of Plumstead Christian School. The Founders Forum will conclude at the school's Plumsteadville campus where Palin will deliver her forum address and answer questions submitted by students. The Founders Forum will include a special tribute to the United States veterans and will feature students in vocal and instrumental music groups.
“We are honored and thrilled that Governor Palin will speak with our students and parents,” Plumstead Christian Head of School Patrick Fitzpatrick said in a release Monday. “Our Founders Forum is designed to bring Christian leaders to our school who will challenge our students and community with a message that reinforces our school’s mission to educate our students to think biblically, serve effectively, and lead Christ-centered lives. We’re confident that Governor Palin’s message will accomplish this.”
Students are excited about Governor Palin’s visit.
“This is really great!” Plumstead Christian School Student Council President Stephen Rosenthal was quoted as saying. “Her vision for our country and her personal experiences that she brings to public life make her a leader.”
“We expect the Governor will challenge our students to live out their Christian faith, to be productive citizens, and to engage the ideas in our nation that are challenging our Christian heritage,” added Plumstead Christian School Chancellor Dean Whiteway. “While this is not a political event, we all recognize Governor Palin’s influence in shaping the direction of our nation.”
