*2020 and 2021 during the height of the pandemic, we held car parades in Newberg, OR and partnered with Wine Country Pride to bring love and celebration to our county.
We invited local libraries to celebrate Pride in their presentations, book displays, and offerings for the month of June. We created art kits for them to distribute to local youth.
