Note: the best way for you to learn details is to attend the meetings, read the Prologue online, read the Facebook posts, and talk with other members; please do not call Harry and David (as they are overwhelmed). IF you think that you did not receive it in e-mail, check your SPAM (junk) folder. The club is attempting to send out a paper copy to those who do not have internet skills, but you need to request this.
June: Pride Month, as we used to call it Gay Pride, but is now LGBTQ+ Pride month. Rainbow flags are being raised in many towns on the North Shore (my area) and I presume where you live too! Boston Pride as an organization has closed and there is no parade, but there still is Boston Pride — right?! There are block parties run by “Boston Proud” on 6/10, and others 6/11: Chandler Street, and 6/12: St. James Street. Jamaica Plain is also doing a party?! The parades: 6/18: Providence, 6/25: NS Pride, Salem, MA.
If you want to know about the Pride events on the North Shore, just inquire with Michael Tobey.
See you Saturday!
