Yesterday was the Pride Center's annual Craig Beach picnic. It was such a great time with delicious food! We had a good turn out and everyone had a fun day! There were hotdogs, hamburgers, cheesy potatoes, pasta, hummus, tabouli, and a lot more food!

Early yesterday morning Tom and I met at the the new pride center space to paint. Brian and I picked out a nice neutral color to paint the old wooden paneling. I brought bagels, sweet tea, and water for everyone, but I also forgot to call Laura and Kay who were anxiously waiting at home for my call so they could report for painting duty. OOPS!

This sunday a few members of the MVPC met up at the new building for a painting party. I (Louis) felt like a lazy beast when next to Kay who was a painting machine! Have a look! We started off by base coating the old paneling with KILZ. KILZ will seal the surface and prep it for a nice neutral color, which Brian and I will go and pick out after work today.

Today the Mahoning Valley Pride Center officially moved from the basement of the First Unitarian Universalist Church in Youngstown to our own building in Youngstown. It was an exciting morning moving the packed boxes to the new building here are a few pictures.

Today Brian, Nicole, and I (Louis) were able to tour the new space that the Pride Center is going to be located. I will say that when I first saw the building I was a bit scared! Don and his team have really worked their magic and have put hours of work into it. It looks amazing compared to when we first saw it. It was exciting to view the space as a blank canvas and we get to put our personal touches on it with paint colors and furniture. I am so excited that we will get to personalize this space and make it a comfortable and welcoming environment for everyone.

Today I was excited to take part in a planning meeting for Mahoning Valley Pride Week. The meeting consisted of people from several community organizations such as The Mahoning Valley Pride Center, P-Flag, Stonewall Democrats, and various members of the Unitarian Church. There were so many great ideas and everyone was full of energy. The week of October 5-12 will be filled with an array of events at YSU, The Unitarian Church and in the community. We have such things planned as showings of For the Bible Tells Me So, panel discussions, and candlelight vigil. We have another meeting in 2 weeks from now on Sunday August 17, 2008 from 1pm-3pm at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Youngstown. Please email email@example.com for more information if you would like to attend. I'll keep everyone posted on the progress we are making. Until next time take care everyone.
