Pride love notes project

PRIDE “LOVE NOTES” coming soon, the last Sunday in May. Check for the display on the Gathering Room table. Marked by a PRIDE balloon, you will find a pile of rainbow index cards and stickers. Please come with ideas of a short quote or loving message to write on a few. Or take a few home to create. We will fill our glass bowl with these and place it on a table in CUF’s PRIDE BOOTH June 24th for folks to take. We will also be talking with folks at the booth and may write a note on PRIDE CARDS for them if they would like. Come and help us make new friends and write a special note you create just for them. 🌈🌟💥


A Kathy and CUF Pride Comm approved project❣️🙌🏼🤩🌈
