It’s once again time for some fellowship & fall fun! Bring your favorite crock pot of chili & be a part of the Great Chili Cook-off. Don’t cook chili?

How about decorating your car trunk for fall & handing out candy to the kids for the 5th annual “Trunk or Treat” event! Participate in one or all of these great activities. There will also be carnival-like games for the kids to enjoy! Please sign-up at the information table by October 24th. Hope you’ll come & join in the fun! Invite your friends & neighbors!

We’ll be discussing “Mama’s Boy” by Dustin Lance Black. “Dustin Lance Black wrote the Oscar-winning screenplay for Milk & helped overturn California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition 8, but as an LGBTQ activist he has unlikely origins – a conservative Mormon household outside San Antonio, Texas. His mother, Anne, was raised in rural Louisiana & contracted polio when she was two years old. She endured brutal surgeries, as well as braces & crutches for life & was told that she would never have children or a family. Willfully defying expectations, she found salvation in an unlikely faith, raised three rough-&-rowdy boys & escaped the abuse & violence of two questionably devised Mormon marriages before finding love & an improbable career in the US civil service.
By the time Lance came out to his mother at age 21, he was a blue-state young man studying the arts instead of going on his Mormon mission. She derided his sexuality as a sinful choice & was terrified for his future. It may seem like theirs was a house destined to be divided & at times it was. This story shines light on what it took to remain a family despite such division – a journey that stretched from the steps of the US Supreme Court to the woodsheds of East Texas. In the end, the rifts that have split a nation couldn’t end this relationship that defined & inspired their remarkable lives.
Mama’s Boy is their story. It’s a story of the noble quest for a plane higher than politics – a story of family, foundations, turmoil, tragedy, elation & love. It’s a story needed now more than ever.” Come & enjoy an evening of discussion, dessert & a lot of fun! Everyone is welcome!
