December Happenings...HANG onto your version of sanity! Do something for others too...

It is THAT TIME OF THE YEAR!

Dear friends, 

Please work to maintain your wonderful or “sassy” attitudes in our turbulent times with not only the stress of holidays, the big changes in our country, but with sad stories we cannot avoid in the news.  WE try to be there for one another and simply getting out with a friend can help a lot. Calls to supportive folks also help. Use our website to find some of those resources and to reserve the dates you see on our calendar for activities we hope will be both social and informative. 

With the intention of uplifting our spirits, I want to mention this Sunday’s opportunity:
On December 11, at the Unitarian Universalists of the Chester River (UUCR), at 10 AM, our speaker, Linda Lucero, will be with us to share her sermon entitled Empower Women Empower Humanity. (UUCR is at 914 Gateway Dr. Chestertown and supports and houses our PFLAG Resource Center and is a Welcoming Congregation.)
Linda's presentation combines an entertaining and enlightening look back to the early days of the women's movement, as well as what it's like to be a young woman today living in a global world.   It is a timely message of hope and inspiration for all women and men, who now must stand fast with girls to ensure their voices are heard and their dignity honored so they get to be the powerful young women they were always meant to be.

LATER this month, we also plan to gather to play some board games, socialize and strategize with you and friends during the last week of the year.  SAVE the DATE of Thursday December 29th for a 3-6 pm “Holiday Board Games Party.” In addition to Chestertown, we are trying to firm up a simultaneous Easton Party spot!  Another announcement will give you the specifics closer to the date.  (NOTE: There will NOT be a typical third Tues meeting on Dec. 20 this month.)

We already have a full spring regular meetings calendar along with most interesting opportunities and ways to continue to work to support our youth and young adults. Thanks to those who have stepped up and will help those activities be announced soon. While we rely on PFLAG.org for most of our work, the school work is beautifully partnered with GLSEN.org. PLEASE visit GLSEN.org and see the riches of info there for all ages and kinds of involvement including the SCOTUS case and new middle school resources!

Finally, thanks to our new PFLAG Chestertown LEADERSHIP GROUP!  We have formed a broader base of leaders who are already working with us to find their best fit as we expand our powers and reach with the help of these fine folks.  It’s not too late for YOU to reach out and say, WHAT can I do for PFLAG on the Eastern Shore in 2017?

Thanks for caring and do CARE for yourself too!
