The Rainbow Seniors of Berkshire County

The Rainbow Seniors of Berkshire County — a program for the county’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender senior citizens and their friends — has announced that its December potluck-and-program will celebrate the holidays on Tuesday, December 15, 2015, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm  at the First Congregational Church of Williamstown, 906 Main Street (on the north campus of Williams College).

Reversing its usual schedule, members of the LGBTQ community will meet earlier than usual — 11:00 am — for a community conversation on “Making the Holidays Merry & Gay” (or “Surviving the Holidays” for those who feel down this time of year). The noon potluck is open to the entire community, so invite your friends to attend and contribute a lunch dish or a beverage.

The meeting is handicap accessible, and there is convenient parking next to the church.

For more information, contact Ed Sedarbaum at ed@rainbowseniors.org or by phone at 413-441-6006. You can also visit the Rainbow Seniors of Berkshire County on their Facebook page.
