We greatly appreciate the hard work and dedication of our editor, Nel Ward! We could use your help and support for about 30 min. on Wed., April 13 at 9:30 AM at the Board of Commissioners meeting in the Courthouse on Olive St. in Newport. The Commissioners will be presenting PFLAG and the GSA kids with a Proclamation of Upstander Week in Lincoln County. Ineka and the GSA kids will share some of their experiences with helping their schools eliminate bullying and build a healthy school climate. Hope you can be there to be “PFLAG’s Posse” at this annual event. The BOC meeting room is right near the entrance in the back parking lot. Hope to see you there!
