Report on Meet and Greet at Chef's Pantry
We collected 148 pounds of food from our very generous members, then got a e-mail from Richard and John that they dropped off an additional 25 pounds, for a total of 183 pounds of much needed food. Remember there are a lot of kids who depended on school lunches. School's out, so we should step up our donations. I know we can do it.

Mount Dora PRIDE parade
The 4th of July parade in Mount Dora is going to have a float and marchers supporting our LGBT brothers and sisters. Go to the pride website (click on site below) and sign up as a marcher. The more the merrier. Rainbow beads will be given out with an attached message of helpful and supportive sites for those who may be in need. The Anti-Bullying message will also be featured. It's only an hour, it's all downhill, and it will be fun. We have won the right to marry, now lets win hearts and minds by showing the community what we can do.
Job Well Done
Congratulations to everyone who worked on the very first Mount Dora Pride float. Turnout was tremendous with close to 50 marching and showing our colors. As I had stated on the Triangle web site, it was now the time to change hearts and minds. Displays like today’s can only strengthen our efforts.
Thanks to Pride Planning Committee members Babs D. and Kathleen W. (designed the logo), Dale G., Bill S., Bob D. and Jamie S., Pat W. (wonderful sashes), Dan O’., Bill O, and especially Marla M (lots and lots of beads). Thanks to Ken B. (web site designer), Timm B. and Stuart K. (donated the fabric), Gloria S. and Bob A. (designed and built the float). Everyone's dedication was focused, with their eyes always on the prize.
Heartfelt thanks also to all the unsung volunteers who made today possible. Today, we celebrated a true Independence Day.
