I am glad you were able to attend the event. As you no doubt know the event was widely advertised on radio, in newspapers and with signs. It is a free event and ALL are invited to attend. If people choose not to come, how can that be a reflection on the local committee, as you seem to be indicating. AND, you must not have seen everyone there because there were people of color there so be diligent in your research.Looks like a very diverse crowd -- Iíve never seen so many different shades of white.
Lots of people on here are saying "old, white,", etc. One of the most eloquent speakers was a 16 year old young man from Lynchburg whose great grandfather was one of the founding patrons of the Greene County pig roast.
Maybe people are ignoring the facts.
