Welcome May

Hello Queer Seniors - it's Merry May - just how do we celebrate? Come find out at the potluck on May 11 at UU Spokane, noon. Volunteers needed to come early and/or stay late for set up or clean up.

Happy blooming birthday to any May babies. A little bird told me it’s Mae’s birthday, the 25th of May.....

Our group news:

If you are a Friday zoomer or you attend potlucks, you know our friend Jerry. Jerry sold his trailer and moved to Whitbey Island on the 22nd of April. Safe travels.

Cam, we wish you all the best in your cancer treatment. We’re just a phone call or email away if you need anything. That goes for any member of the group!

If you missed the potluck or zoom speaker in April, you missed out!

 We had a great time at the potluck and learned about the upcoming state-wide LGBTQ+ survey from Dr. Traci Gillig. The results of the survey will be used to influence policies in the legislature. At the Zoom on April 19th Matthew shared information

about the LGBTQ History Project that will be part of the Pride celebration and hopefully be archived in a central location.

Thank you, Christine for baking the ham that our grant funds paid for at the potluck.

Don’t worry there’s time to ask questions at our May Potluck

on Saturday, May 11th 4340 W. Whistalks Way, baked chicken will be provided, again, thanks to the grant monies at NOON. Please bring a dish to share and RSVP to

 if you hope to come so, we set up enough tables.

PRIDE

We are gearing up for Pride Celebrations on June 1 in Coeur d'Alene and June 8th in Spokane. The group is registered for the Spokane parade and a “booth”. We need people to walk in the parade and people to person the booth - just getting our name out there, educating folks about who we are - visibility matters. If you can assist, please do - contact Hannah rosebudmd@gmail.com

How long the hours at the booth are, depends on the number of people who say they’ll help out. We’d like 2 people for each shift so no one gets lonely. Please let Hannah know NOW if you would like to help. Let’s not wait until the last minute to volunteer.

If you want to help out at the booth in Coeur d’Alene, please get in touch with Doug or Ken.

We purchased business cards, key chains, refrigerator magnets, stickers and rainbow candy to hand out at the booths. Thanks, Ken, for purchasing these, paid for by the grant money.

WHEEL CHAIRS,

 We will rent some wheelchairs IF people request them to

participate in the parade. Please let Nancy know if you want a wheelchair NOW.

Don’t wait, as we need to reserve them.

OUR STORIES SHARING LGBTQ HISTORY PROJECT AT PRIDE

If you would be willing to share your lgbtq journey at PRIDE, please contact

Nancy. Your story can be 2 minutes, 5, 10 or longer. You’ll be sharing at a table in the pavilion, or maybe just walking around in the pavilion sharing your story. NancyTavery@comcast.net

Mea Culpa

HELLO SPRING

Do April showers really bring May flowers? An apology to the March birthday leprechauns - they were really born in April. And if we missed saying Happy Birthday to anyone born in March, blame it on th
