Final speeches were given by Liberty Buchanan and Pastor Gary Sawyer, and things came to a close with a Benediction by Father Karlgut.
While people slowly headed homeward little by little, some of the speech-givers and candidates stuck around to speak with the rally-goers and some folks had their photos taken next to pseudo-Hinchey: photo.
