Erie Pride Picnic a fun time for all

from NW PA Pride Alliance

On Saturday, June 16, about 215 people got together for food, folks and fun at the 21st Annual Erie Pride Picnic Rotary Pavilion at Presque Isle State Park. New this year was ox roast to go with the traditional hot dogs.

We also collected 57 pounds of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank of NW PA, so thanks for helping those who are less fortunate!

Info tables at the event included Adagio Health, Community Health Net, Crime Victim Center of Erie County, Erie Sisters, Greater Erie Alliance for Equality (GEAE), LBT Women, Marriage Equality for PA (who celebrated their first anniversary). Mental Health Association of NW PA and Persad Center.
