A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....09-30-03....Hall of Fame #5
Billie

Posted on 09/30/2003 6:06:20 AM PDT by Billie



A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day
Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.   Over 100,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic, and the forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.
A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day was introduced on June 24, 2002. It's only a small room in JimRob's house where we can get to know one another a little better; salute and support our military and our leaders; pray for those in need; and congratulate those deserving. We strive to keep our threads entertaining, fun, and pleasing to look at, and often have guest writers contribute an essay, or a profile of another FReeper.
On Mondays please visit us to see photos of A FEW OF FR'S VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY
If you have a suggestion, or an idea, or if there's a FReeper you would like to see featured, please drop one of us a note in FR mail.
We're having fun and hope you are!

~ Billie, Mama_Bear, dansangel, dutchess, Aquamarine ~











Thank you to all our Hall of Famers and to all of you who have become part of our Finest Family ... as regular contributors and supporters who drop in every day to say hello and give a 'pat on the back' to the "Freeper of the Day" and the hostesses.  We wouldn't be here without you. : )
We're into our second year now, and we're still having fun. We hope you are. As promised, for your information and perusal, here is our fifth "Hall of Fame" - a list of all those who've held center stage ... from Monday, June 24, 2002 through Monday, September 29, 2003.
