    - At least 100 people, many wearing “I am Mister Family” T-shirts, assembled at the Wyoming Valley Mall parking lot to protest Gentlemen’s Club 10.

    An anonymous man calling himself Mr. Family recently started the Web site www.stopgclub10.com. He is asking people to post pictures of club patrons on the site, as well as pictures of their license plates.

    As of Saturday, five pictures appeared on the site, but most images have been altered so no one can be positively identified.

    Despite the low number of pictures, the movement has caught the attention of local religious groups, some of whom organized Saturday’s prayer meeting.

    Protestors and police began to arrive around 6:45 p.m. and club employees were stationed outside to ask protestors to leave the property.

    According to the Rev. Marty Garms of Wilkes-Barre’s East End Primitive Baptist Church, the protestors were there to pray for the employees and patrons. The group said they hope the people eventually realize what they’re doing is wrong.
