NIP Rally, September 30, 2006

NIP "No Incorporation Please" hit another home run at its rally today. The petition signatures, voter registrations and donations were consistent with the two previous Saturday rallies. They also ran out of NIP yard signs and bumper stickers again and will look into getting more to meet the demand.

NIP will continue its Saturday rallies until everyone is reached who wants to sign-on to "Stop Incorporation of Sneads Ferry." Therefore, there will be another rally next Saturday, October 7, 2006, beginning at 9:00 AM and lasting as long as necessary. It will again be held on the vacant lot beside the Sneads Ferry post office on Highway 172.

Volunteers, please come out and help. Your help is valuable and essential to accomplish the mission.

Sneads Ferry No Incorporation Please - NIP

There has been a major upheaval in Sneads Ferry, NC these days as people are deciding whether or not to incorporate the town of Sneads Ferry.

Sneads Ferry Incorporation at Issue

Recently, there have been a number of rumors going around the town of Sneads Ferry regarding incorporation of the town and its benefits. Rather than rely on rumors, please investigate the facts including existing laws on the books before deciding whether incorporation is good or bad. See EncToday Forum thread on Sneads Ferry: Stop Incorporation....

Saturday, September 23, 2006:

Today's rally and signature drive far exceeded NIP's (NO INCORPORATION PLEASE) expectations. Even though the weather was quite windy, cloudy and drizzly, it didn't stop a large number of people from coming out and letting their voices be heard. The petition signatures, voter registrations and donations surpassed last week's, which was very impressive. As we were trying to leave around 5:30 PM, the people just kept on coming and we kept signing them up.

Since today's event was so successful, and we feel unfinished, as far as everyone getting an opportunity to sign on with us, we will continue the drive next Saturday, September 30. It will be at the same location, on the vacant lot beside the Sneads Ferry post office on hwy. 172, beginning at 9:00 AM and lasting until.....

We ask that volunteers please come out and help us on Saturday. We need all the volunteers that we can get and we appreciate all that all of you are doing to help.

Thanks to everyone for a job well done!
