Subject: Travel pool report #6 - Arrival at memorial site

Motorcade arrived at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas at 12:44 PM local time. Pool did not see POTUS exit The Beast.

Motorcade route through Dallas was lined with onlookers, often two or three deep, taking cellphone pictures. Your pooler saw at least four yard signs with the slogan "Thank You Blue" in between two police badges wrapped in black ribbon.

Program had yet to begin when the pool arrived at the symphony center. The hall was full of guests, including uniformed law enforcement officers in the orchestra and seated behind the lectern on stage. A piano player played music as the crowd waited.
