May is here! We have many opportunities and local information to share!

What a month April was and May is in full swing!  Thanks to the many folks who attended our presentation about using pronouns such as “They.” Thanks also for our visitors on First Friday May 1 in Fountain Park. Look for us again on June 5th with our rainbow umbrella and a picnic celebrating our Rainbow Families! Welcome to several new (bcc) names on our list!  Remember to look at our website for info on prior events and other resources.

Congrats and Thanks also to those involved in the Kids Who Care Award!  Rebecca Lepter of the Kent County Family and Community Partnerships hosted a celebratory breakfast honoring the recipients. It was great to be part of this process as well as the press conference and coverage of our GSA Umbrella Krewe project. In addition, other GSA students participated in the Youth Panel presentation last week for the Big Brothers, Big Sisters project called Aim for the Future.  YOUR voices are being heard!  Thanks for making our community aware and supportive on behalf of all of us!  Congrats also to our Washington College students who are graduating next weekend!  Best wishes to you all.

Tuesday May 19, 7 pm the date of our usual monthly meeting…and this month we need to have a leadership planning meeting because we have so many things to catch up with!  Come on down to UUCR if you want to get more involved!  Like every group around, your help will be valued!  We are present if you need support or want to borrow from our resource materials.  Did anyone notice that we have donated new books to the Kent County Public libraries?  They even made a book plate for us to acknowledge our gift!

Thursday May 21 is GIVE OUT DAY!  This is the third year for this nationwide event and PFLAG Chestertown is a registered participant!  Go to, search for our chapter, Click and Donate!  Spread the word using social networking tools available on the site!  We will use the funds next year for improved programming, written materials to distribute and whatever new ideas you come up with!  This is a great opportunity for us…if you want to help with more promotional ideas, the door is open!

Saturday May 23 is the Chestertown Tea Party!  We will have our nonprofit info booth near Monument Park among the craft vendors. The UU’s of the Chester River will have their popular Lemon Stick booth on Park Row among the food vendors. BOTH of these settings welcome volunteers!  Remember that UUCR supports our Chapter in many ways.  Supporting their booth at the Tea Party is a great way to say Thank you.  Simply email to sign up to help us.

SAVE the DATE:  Saturday June 13th for a daytrip to DC to enjoy Capitol Pride!  We already have 14 folks planning to attend….we will have our own bus!  Contact us....
