Carol Dowe, organizer of the protest, advises anyone wanting to attend to bring a chair, protest signs and follow social distancing guidelines. There will also be a sign-in sheet for the protesters and hand sanitzer.

“Our concerns are especially for the health and safety of our children and grandchildren located near this proposed cell tower location, in the middle of some four daycares, two elementary schools and our vulnerable senior/elderly population,” said Dowe in an email.
