Pete White's Additional Video from Saturday's Williamsport Proud Gathering



Williamsport Proud gathered to play some basketball in Memorial Park. Since the city took down the park's hoops a month or so ago, the group brought their own hoops in order to play. At the park, they were told they had no permit to bring / set up their own play equipment and were halted from using their own hoops. 

This clip shows former Williamsport Basketball Coach Pete White addressing the orderly crowd after his hoops were lowered to the ground.
