Twenty years! Twenty years of being a part of the Central Valley GLBT community is quickly approaching for Community Link. February 2008 will mark the two decade anniversary of Community Link’s formation to provide services to the GLBT community, to help create positive changes in attitudes about GLBT individuals, and develop social opportunities and outlets to celebrate the queer experience here in the Valley.
On Saturday, February 23, 2008 Community Link will celebrate its 20 year anniversary with an OPEN and FREE reception at the First Congregational Church of Fresno (The Big Red Church) at 2131 N. Van Ness Boulevard. The doors will open at 6pm and the celebration will end by 10pm.
Community Link plans on displaying mementos and archives of its journey of creating a difference at the reception as well as some of the Valley’s Queer Community history. An experience may be the first of its kind. Come by to view a hidden treasure trove of pioneering queer spirit, not only of Community Link’s contributions, but also, some of our first organizations, publications, and individual contributions.
The evening will include appetizers, non-alcoholic refreshments, vocal and musical performances, and presentation of the Pillars of Support Awards.
This will be a great time to come mingle with old friends and meet members of the community. We hope everyone will make an effort to drop and spend some time with us!
Open to all ages!
