As protests and demonstrations ramped up throughout the country this weekend, downtown Elizabethtown played host to two such events. On Saturday, around 100 participants gathered around the public square to conduct a peaceful protest. Elizabethtown Mayor Jeff Gregory thanked participants for their cooperation ahead of Saturday’s demonstration, saying that the event should be seen as an example for those wishing to do the same. Sunday’s protest, which was not organized by the same group and was larger than Saturday’s, was still peaceful. Elizabethtown Police Chief Jeremy Thompson said that with both protests, organizers and participants alike have been helpful and understanding, ultimately fostering good communication between the two. It is unknown yet if additional protests are scheduled for this week in Elizabethtown and the surrounding communities.
