You’re invited to a summer picnic with the Rainbow Elders!

Join the Rainbow Elders for their annual summer picnic on Tuesday, July 17, 2018, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., at a private residence in Greenfield. A rain date is scheduled for Wednesday, July 18.

Summers Lease“We would love to see you!” says JR, Rainbow Elders Steering Committee Member. “People come from all over Franklin and Hampshire county to our events. It’s just a really nice way to connect with people and not feel so isolated. It’s a very open and welcoming venue for all of the LGBTIQA elders in the area.”

At this afternoon gathering, you can enjoy a catered meal, meander through the daylily gardens on 15 and a half acres of land, and meet with LGBTIQA friends old and new.

FriendsRSVP by July 12 online or contact Lynne Feldman, Director of Community Services at LifePath: 413-775-5555 x2215, or 978-544-2259 x2215. You will receive a confirmation with directions. Registrants will receive a call or email should the event be rained out.

A suggested donation of $10 is appreciated and will be used to cover expenses for this and future Rainbow Elders events. If you can donate more than $10, it will help someone else with fewer resources attend. Any donation amount is welcome.
