The group's Facebook page had this news earlier in the evening:
We've confirmed with local authorities that they have also heard that protesters are planning on being outside the library tonight [Nov. 15]. It is our understanding that representatives of the Bakersville Police Department and Mitchell County Sheriff's Department plan to be present in the vicinity. ...
Our first public meeting will be at the Mitchell County Library in downtown Bakersville. The focus of the meeting will be to meet in a casual, friendly atmosphere with other straight and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people who are interested in civil rights and justice for all. Our focus will be to talk about Amendment One, set our priorities, and start down the road of creating a new environment in Mitchell County!
