Quest Youth Center Grand Opening Kicks Off 2013 Pride
Quest Youth Center enjoyed a fantastic turnout for our grand opening!
We served over 60 BBQ meals (the crowds seemed to come in waves, so we had three distinct dinners!), we had three pastors help us dedicate Quest….and a smudge ceremony to cleanse and bless our new space.
Our youth worked hard, put on a great BBQ, and were so happy to have support from our 5-state Pride Foundation, My Friend’s Place, Three Rivers Coalition, The Chaplaincy, SARC, Shalom Church of Christ, MId-Columbia Pride, Elijah House, St. Paul’s, and more!
Many folks signed up for our facilitators training, we now have a donated domain and webpage (and webmaster!) coming soon! Not to waste any time, Foursquare was set up while we shared dinner!
Our donations were more than we had dared hope for…..We are humbled, honored and blessed. Our youth will remember this day and your support. Thank you, one and all!
