The Prairie Pride Coalition will sponsor our annual Family Reunion Picnic beginning at noon on Sunday, June 10
under the east shelter at Anderson Park in Normal.
This year marks the 21st edition of the picnic…believed to be the oldest such event in Central Illinois! To celebrate, this year PPC is providing all the food for the picnic – main dish, side items, and drinks. It is our way of
saying thank you for 21 years of support.
In return, we are encouraging attendees to bring an item to donate to Project Oz‘s youth homeless project.
We selected this organization because statistics consistently indicate that LGBTQ youth make up a disproportionate percentage of the homeless youth population. Project Oz needs items such as gift cards to fast food restaurants; gas cards; travel size hygiene items; trash bags; paper towels; new socks; sunscreen; bus tokens; bottled water; and umbrellas.
Soon we will create a Facebook event for the picnic; in the meantime, if you have questions please contact us at
