The 2019 Pridefest at Centre Park was a wonderful event to be a part of yesterday. Thank you to all who organized Pridefest,  everyone who volunteered to be at the First UU table, all who stopped by to say hi and hang out with us on a hot afternoon, those who were with us in spirit, and everyone who attended and made it a special day. The glitter blessings were a success and were well-received in the spirit of the Day. We are already looking forward to next year’s Pridefest.
