Pride Veterans Group – LGBT Center of Greater Reading on Wednesday May 11 at 7PM

Dear Veterans,

Thank you for allowing us to present our services to your group earlier this month. As part of our presentation, you may recall, we mentioned that we are in the process of setting up an LGBT Veterans Social Group which meets monthly (Wed at 7pm) here at the center.

The purpose of the group will be to provide opportunities to socialize and network with Veterans who identify as part of the LGBT Community. If you don’t identify with this particular group, please feel free to forward this to anyone you think might benefit from this program and I thank you in advance for your support.

We would like to invite all interested parties to join us for appetizers at the LGBT Center (640 Centre St, Reading, PA) on Wed. May 11 at 7 pm. We would like to hear your opinions on what content would be valuable to group participants during this time. These may include events, peer-led support groups, and most importantly, your new ideas.

If you are interested in attending, please click here <> . We appreciate your RSVP since we would like to get an accurate count since we will be serving food and drinks.

Thank you for your service and we look forward to meeting you on the 11th.
