It was a good start, but most I talked to were uncertain about a schedule or program. When the Chancellor arrived, we expected her to speak, but apparently that was not part of the plan. It was ok - for a start - but not great. For future events, we just need more detail. I got there at 3:30, but headed back to the office at 4:30, as people were just milling around. The handprint rock painting was a great activity - but significance was not really explained.

It was inspiring! I love our community, and feel strongly that we are a family. We are united against bigotry and bias. I took some good pictures, too if you want to see them:
