The Fight the Freight crew made their first splash last night at Lakeland’s First Friday. In addition to the information booth, the group sponsored a dunk tank which housed a very vocal “railroad man” (Scott Childers*) egging on residents armed with softballs.
The group will circulate a petition asking for a meeting with Gov. Crist. You can find the petition at many downtown businesses, such as Brooke Pottery.
