Recently JCPenney has hired Ellen Degeneres as their spokesperson. It was not well receieved by various organizations. It is Great Lakes Pride's intention to show the community and hopefully the country that we are a force. We need to unite and become one in order to make any progress. We have collaborated with the JCPenney store in Rivertown Crossings Mall to hold a Shopping Flash Mob. We need to show that our spending habits do impact the economy. So, I am making a personal plea with each and everyone of you, to come support Ellen, JCPennney, and ourselves as a community, by showing up on Saturday March 3, 2012 between 12pm and 6pm to SPEND & SUPPORT JCPenneys decision to hire Ellen, one of our own, as their spokesperson. We are all wearing sky blue (Ellen's Color) so that we all will be recognized as a community. I hope to see all of you there.
Great Lakes Pride President
