From: West Branch Pride, executive committee
Press Release for immediate distribution:
At West Branch Pride, we have spent about a year organizing and planning to hold a Pride event in Williamsport in September 2020. Due to the previous and ongoing coronavirus-related restrictions and concerns, we have decided to postpone our inaugural West Branch Pride Day until September 2021.
More details will be released as they become available. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and our website: WestBranchPride.com
Our executive board is committed to more than simply producing an annual Pride Day. We are also involved in advocacy, public speaking, and we’re working on the extensive planning processes that will enable us to open an LGBTQ+ Community Center in the next few years. It will be located in Williamsport and will serve this entire region with many necessary services in addition to being available for groups to utilize our meeting space. It is way past time that we, as a community, have access to many of these beneficial services, right here at home.
We are a diverse group of people who are committed to teamwork and maintaining a safe, welcoming, and respectful atmosphere. If you are interested in joining our efforts, please email or call us! All media outlets are invited to contact Jay at (570) 980-1155 or Jay@WestBranchPride.com.
Your team at West Branch Pride
Jay Grandis, President
