NKY Pride 2017: June 11


We need all of your help to pull off the biggest NKY Pride ever this Sunday! Are you available on Sunday to assist? You'll receive a free volunteer t-shirt and our eternal gratitude. Current estimates for this Sunday are quite impressive. More than 50 different organizations are walking in the first NKY Pride Parade (est. 1,000+ people walking in the parade and 2,000+ people visiting Goebel Park). We need help with the set up, clean up, as well as the parade. We also need people to walk for NKY Pride in the parade and pass out swag. If you're interested, please let Bonnie Meyer or Chuck Beatty know or sign up in the Google Doc.
