“Free Mom Hugs”
“Love One Another” ~ No exceptions Butterfly.
At least 35 KUC folks turned out to walk or to staff our booth…it was awesome! We were joined by 14 other wonderful people from Mt. Paul United, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. Our boas and our butterfly signs made an impact! We were P.I.E. – public, intentional and explicit about the message,”Love one another (no exceptions!)”
There were other churches represented as well with Plura Hills United and Wild Church having booths right beside ours.
Kamloops Pride announced that 2019 was the biggest celebration so far with 57 organizations registered to participate and nearly 1500 marchers!
