Reflecting Back on
Day of PRIDE 2013
of PRIDE Participant inside Bowl Plaza Restroom
of PRIDE 2013 co hosted by the PRIDE Communities of Wilson and Lucas
Kansas was not only a day of celebration of cultural capital, but a day
to reflect on the success and struggles of PRIDE Communities.
After a presentation of
the highlights and lowlights of Wilson PRIDE, the park project in PRIDE
Park in Wilson was explored, were a splashpad will be installed this
After lunch and group
discussions a dollar auction was held that raised over $800 to benefit
the Partners in PRIDE grant fund!
Participants were then
treated to popcorn and soda at the Lucas Theater where Lucas PRIDE
shared their successes and setbacks. A major success includes the
reacquisition of the stone cones that had been removed from Miller's
Park. The cones are set to be reintroduced into their original settings
in Millers park in the near future.
Thank you to all of those
who planned, presented and participated in Day of PRIDE 2013, it was
certainly a great success! Czech out (pun intended) our Facebook page for pictures of the event!

Kansas PRIDE Program...
Building Better Communities
Kansas PRIDE Program is a
partnership of K-State Research and Extension, the Kansas Department of
Commerce, and Kansas PRIDE, Inc.
PRIDE is dedicated to serving communities across the state to encourage
and assist local government and volunteers in making their community a
better place to live and work.
Through the PRIDE program, local communities identify what they would
like to preserve, create, or improve for their future. Then, working
with the resources of K-State Research & Extension and the
Department of Commerce, community volunteers pull together to create
their ideal community future. To learn more about the Kansas
Program, we invite you to look through the resources and links
available at this website, or contact
the PRIDE staff.
