Education and entertainment will be the topic at a meeting for the Stonewall Columbus Programming Committee on Wednesday, April 30, 2003. The Programming Committee is seeking input from the GLBT community on what types of activities Stonewall should provide. The public is invited to attend to offer ideas and suggestions, volunteer to direct a program or join the Programming Committee.

"We are looking for some creative individuals to help us design and conduct programs. We need your ideas and efforts," Jack Miner committee co-chair said.

Programs currently in the planning stage include Stonewall's own version of the Antiques Road Show, a bartending class, a book club, a pet care program and a monthly play date for GLBT parents and their children.

"In order to serve our community we need to ask what they want and need," Executive Director Kate Anderson said. "Stonewall has a 22 year history of serving the GLBT community, but as our community grows and matures, needs change and we need to keep up with those changes," Anderson added.

The Programming Committee meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 30, 2003 at 7 p.m. at Stonewall Columbus Community Center at 1160 N. High Street in Columbus. More information is available from Stonewall at 614/299-7764. Programming ideas and suggestions can also be sent to
