March of support for Ocean County homeless a great success

About 250-300 people attended a march and rally of support for Ocean County's homeless Tuesday Nov. 15, walking from Tent City to the town's municipal building.  Participatns included the homeless, clergy, college students from GCU and OCC, business people and community members.

The mile-long march kicked off a little after 5:30 p.m. and took about half an hour to complete.

Lakewood police accompanied the marchers through the whole trip and provided protection as the marchers crossed the streets and driveways.

A few snapshots of the marchers can be found at the following Flickr slideshow: http://www.flickr.com/photos/22036136@N07/sets/72157628012981009/show/
