BANKS - Two rallies were planned in Banks on July 4th, though one, what would have been the fourth Black Lives Matter protest, was cancelled the day prior by the organizer of the protest. 

The one remaining rally was held on Main Street in front of Sunset Park from about 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in support of law enforcement officers. 

Drawing a small group of about 15 - 20 participants, the attendees waved signs and signed cards in support of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. 

Most attendees did not wear masks, but did follow social distancing measures.
