Obama supporters will join the MLK March Monday

We are gathering in front of the Tabernacle Missionary Church at 2437 E. Magnolia at 8:30 a.m. You will recognize us by our Obama gear and signs. This a great chance to honor Dr. King and to help show everyone the large amount of support Obama has locally.

There is also a Nevada watch party on January 26th, 7 p.m. at the Downtown Brewery 424 Gay Street. I have to say the Obama supporters in Knoxville tend be a very diverse and interesting group. Here's the announcement.

COME JOIN OBAMA BACKERS FOR THIS EXCITING NIGHT OF POLL WATCHING. THE PUB OFFERS GOOD BEER AND DRINKS AS WELL AS GOOD FOOD, SNACK BASKETS AND PIZZA. JOIN THE EXCITEMENT. WE HAD A BLAST LAST TIME. contact 865-688-3801 or - 865-456-6898
