Quincy Tea Party celebrates anniversary

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - The Quincy Tea Party celebrated its fifth anniversary by giving back to veterans.

Supporters of the political group held a fish fry Friday night at the Twin Oaks Club.  More than 250 people turned out.  They even had to go buy more fish at one point.  Proceeds go to Fishing for Freedom, to support wounded veterans.
Becky Vogel says it's an event veterans look forward to every year.

"Fishing for Freedom guys tell me they look forward to this all year long, and while they're here they say I'll be back next year because they had such a good time.  So many of them in wheelchairs, and that's it's so difficult for them to do things they used to do," Vogel said.

Fishing for Freedom also needs local volunteers who have boats.
