Pride Day in Albany, 6/22

June 22 is Pride Day in Albany—a big wonderful party with performers, information, advocacy. Joyce Marvel-Benoist and JF Benoist have been hosting a Support Booth each year on the lawn near the stage.
This booth makes space for people to come get a snack, relax and create some calm, ask for support, feel accepted.

We are looking for helpers that day for 2-3 hour shifts. You must be emotionally mature, and good at being present and calm and welcoming.

Contact Joyce at 808-756-2703 if you can be supportive all day that day.

Benefit Concert for Democracy Action Team Stamp Fund, 6/30

Concert to benefit the UUFC Democracy Action Team stamp fund. Sunday June 30,
4 PM Donation $20 or pay what you can.

Concert to warm the heart, give you courage, and refresh the humor button with a wide variety of music—familiar tunes from the likes of Dylan, Stephen Foster, The Youngbloods, Pete Seeger, Gillian Welch and others, along with a few silly thought-provoking ditties.
Our band is a loose, rough-cut gem that fosters and celebrates community and reminds us of the power of coming together in song.

Music is love.
Treat your heart.
We do this together.
The Pereira/Weiss Band of 5 Musicians
