Welcome to the Patrick Henry Tea Party! We created this site to keep the citizens of western Hanover County and surrounding areas informed about important governmental issues affecting citizens on the local, state and national levels. We are a grassroots organization with a focus on smaller, less-intrusive government, fiscal prudence, adherence to our Constitution and unashamed patriotism.
A big "thank you" to everyone who attended our November meeting on Tuesday night for pizza, drinks and cake. In addition to the fellowship and great food, we had an interesting meeting with a lot of input and feedback from the folks who attended. This was our last meeting for 2014. Watch this website for a notice of our first meeting in 2015. Thank you for all that you have done for your communtiy and the Patrick Henry Tea Party in 2014!

A World War II Thanksgiving, 1943: During World War II, the Office of Price Administration instituted rationing, limiting the amount of goods, including food items, that civilians could purchase, affecting daily life and traditions on the home front. What was it like to plan a holiday meal in 1943? "The Times (L.A. Times) advises readers to be flexible in making substitutes because many items in the traditional Thanksgiving meal are scarce or unavailable. Turkeys are smaller in 1943, because feed supplies are low. Many of the birds are being sent to soldiers overseas, so the home front has to make do with chicken, which isn't rationed, unlike red meat. And if you can't get a chicken, try pork shoulder. Instead of butter, use margarine or chicken or bacon fat. Sage, most of it from Dalmatia, is unobtainable, so try using oregano in your dressing. Oysters are also scarce because the men who would have harvested them are at war."

As you gather with your loved ones to give thanks, we ask that you please remember the men and women in our Armed Forces who will not be with their loved ones while they keep us all safe so that we can enjoy our holidays.
