A COMMUNITY TO TAKE PRIDE IN

Eighty Rainbow Women and friends enjoyed perfect weather, our very own ukulele group, the Rainbow Jammers, and a corn-hole game at our annual Pride Picnic in celebration of Gay Pride Month in June.

Sue Lebow, on right in photo with Patty Rhodes, can take pride in seeing so many women enjoying the organization she helped found back in 2011 with Sue Dibble and Jeanne DeJoseph. The two Sues carried the torch for many years and love seeing the active membership grow every year.

OUT-OF-TOWNERS CHECK US OUT

Rainbow women invited several out-of-town guests to the picnic. Ruth Dubin (on left in photo below) and her partner, Susan Eddy, came all the way from Gainesville, Georgia to join their friends Lea Hopkinson and Peg Adams.
