Plenty of time to share your personal issues and concerns
Discussion about our “Picnic-Cook-In,” August 10, at Twin Lakes
Please enter the building through the covered walk behind the sanctuary. Plenty of parking there.
Congratulations to our friend Cindy Davis on her new Advice column in the Burlington Times News. It will appear on Mondays and gives Cindy an opportunity to share her training as a licensed professional counselor with those seeking help with personal situations in their lives.
Cindy retired some years ago following a serious illness but is delighted to have the new forum for her skills. The first column appeared in the July 2 edition of the Times News. Got an issue? Ask Cindy. Send it to: Cindysuggests@gmail.com

A Message From the Human Rights Campaign
June 26 marked the 3-year anniversary of a major victory: marriage equality.
I’d like to say we’ve come so far since then … but with Trump and Pence in office, the LGBTQ community has faced more hurdles and setbacks. But, you know what? Our community of LGBTQ people and allies are fighters – we won’t give up – and we will prove that love trumps hate!
So, listen. In order to keep pushing equality forward, HRC needs more monthly support from advocates like you. Please mark today’s anniversary by committing to do more to fight for equality – pledge $5 a month. As a thank you, we’ll rush you a limited-edition Partner Pride Sticker and Address Label pack to show your support!
I know you care about equality, it shows through your past activism, so I hope I can count on you today. By becoming an HRC Partner, you’ll play an even larger role in defending and expanding LGBTQ rights.

Details at our meeting next week and in a future Newsletter
Welcome to PFLAG Alamance. We offer a safe, confidential space in which to explore our feelings and under-standings about the LGBT experience, especially “coming out” and what this means to families and other loved ones. Listen and share as much or as little as you feel comfortable with, knowing that others can understand.
And remember….when you no longer feel you need PFLAG, PFLAG needs you! There are people out there who need a supportive friend.
