Mid-Columbia Pride 2013 -- thank you for making it all possible. City of Richland: You were great, helping with things from top to bottom. Quest team: Amanda, Kelsey & Karin: Your leadership made it happen. Twenty-something Group: Your work made us pretty. Out&About: Free waters, support and so much more. Kade, Sadie, Crystal, Carl & your crew: What a bunch of workers. I raise my glass to the future leaders in the community.
Saint Paul's Episcopal Church: The facility and flexibility of your staff is wonderful, and special thanks to Alex for being the key master. Pride Foundation: Your support and visibility with us makes us stronger. Metropolitan Community Church Rev. Janet: You're a trooper! You are a big part of this community. Christopher Mobley and Jen Davis: You made the parade happen this year! Petey Puckett, Emily Richman, U4EA, Cindy Stratman, Kate Turner and Ash and J. What more can I say? Mark Lee for being the networking king. Planned Parenthood, Market Vineyards, Cameron Mitchell, Scott Jensen (DJ SCO) and Out&About for all of the events this week.
This was a big week and things went very well. I am sure I missed someone -- there were so many -- and a million thank yous would not be enough.
