Supporters of Donald Trump and Joe Biden both held rallies at the same time on the Oval on Sunday, November 1, two days before Election Day.

Republicans and Democrats from Livingston planned their rallies together; the Biden rally was initially scheduled to take place a few days later. Saying that every American has the right to freedom of speech, organizers agreed to hold their rallies simultaneously, on opposite sides of the entrance to the Oval.

“Together, as one community, we can set an example of civility in an ever polarizing world,” read a joint statement issued by both groups. “Let this day be a constructive day that we can all use as a step forward in improving the country for which we all share the goal of wanting to make it a better place.”

LHS Band Performs Under “Thursday Night Lights”

Because parents have not had much chance to watch their children in the Livingston High School marching band perform, band director Jim Hegedus invited them to last week’s “Thursday Night Lights,” a weekly opportunity for the band to participate in a virtual state competition.

“This was the first time we ever did anything like this in my 20 years here as band director – much like everything else in 2020,” said Hegedus. “Our parents have not had a chance to see the Lancer marching band perform this year other than the one home football game we had on October 9. So I decided to create this event and call it ‘Thursday Night Lights,’ a take on ‘Friday Night Lights’ for high school football games.”
