How did it go?: 

The March went well. Nine people showed up. Six of those people took part in the March. The weather was good for a little stroll downtown. Bottled water/ cookies were present for those who may have wanted a drink/a sugar rush before the March/after the March. The local news paper had a reporter come out and do some interviews about PFLAG/Loving Day. The story was in the 6/21/2015 edition of the local paper. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and are looking forward to another Loving Day event possibly happening next year.
