Organizer of the Women’s March here gushes out her gratitude!
I sincerely thank you for your good works and spirit in putting on this historic rally in Laguna Beach. Thanks to the musicians, speakers and guardian angels for lending your voice, energy and generosity. Thanks to the City of Laguna Beach and KX935 for your help and inspiration. Thanks to Bill Atkins for his awesome banner, and finally, a big thanks to Barbara MacGillivray for generously donating funds for the stage and tent.
I am so proud of our town! A community with a loving heart and a mighty roar! Please see our flowchart.
We put on a show people!
A big hug and shout out to Tom Joliet for being the very backbone of this entire event. He did all the heavy lifting and kept me sane!
And finally, thanks to our little hometown, Laguna Beach. We rallied and showcased the strength and wisdom that our country has to offer when we embrace our neighbors and our differences and come together to promote the common good.
I am grateful!
