I wasn't there, but Peter debriefed me by phone after the meeting. He estimated attendance at 150. There was coverage from all the local newspapers, AP, all the local TV stations, NECN and I forget who else. He said, that the checks/pledges in hand were just from the meeting today. He felt they could not accept money until there was an agreement with the Berrys and this press conference was the official roll-out. The interest shown online is not included and when push comes to shove, he realizes that many of those who showed interest and indicated they would provide support, may not actually come through when the reality of writing a check comes along.How?! Most people have work, so how many people could even make it to the meeting? Did that include people who offered money online? Sounds like they are off to a good start.
