Though a class from SUNY Potsdam organized the event, community members of all stripes came out to celebrate. Somewhere around two hundred people lined the way from Main Street to SUNY Potsdam campus, finishing the afternoon with stories, songs, and a drag show. Reporters Zach Hirsch and Natasha Haverty were there to capture the sights and sounds of the day.
