However, a RSVP (Contact Bonnie Kawicki or Marty Tewksbury) is required by June 7 for the barbeque, which features fresh cooked burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, potato salad, cookies, and fixings.
The film Pride is based on an actual event that took place in 1984 in Wales. A group of lesbian and gay activists raised money to support a group of striking Welch miners. “In this feel-good, heartwarming comedy, two groups seemingly from worlds apart, discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.” ` ~from the DVD cover~ The film is R-rated. A short discussion will follow for those who would like to stay.
