Instead of scattering for lunch we all gathered at the Mellwood Cafe and continued our discussions. After lunch, Joann Weiss, Mary Nehring, and CJ Pressma shared our work and the day ended with 3 new people becoming SAQA members.
I rode high for days afterwards until I had to switch gears to take advantage of a booth opportunity at Brown-Forman Distilleries which is headquartered here. Last Thursday their LGBT committee held their first ever annual Pride Festival for their employees...it was a 2.5 hour event held in their courtyard. It was a blending of a cookout, service organizations, artists, and samplings (love Chambord with Sprite! yummy!) It was good PR for Mellwood as a majority of the artists were Mellwoodians. Two of the local stations covered the event on the evening news...here is a link to one of them...WAVE3.
