Juneau: Camp, Hike & Picnic with SEAGLA this summer
The Southeast Alaska Gay & Lesbian Alliance (SEAGLA) has announced the dates of several Juneau events for Summer 2011, including the PRIDE Picnic on July 9th. Put it on the calendar!
SEAGLA Friday Socials continue to successfully occur each Friday after work from 6 – 8 PM. The group composition changes from week to week, but we always seem to have fun. All community members over 21 and their friends, both men and women, are invited to gather at the Jaded Lounge in the Goldbelt Hotel in downtown Juneau to decompress from the work week and catch up with friends. Come on out, and visit with an old friend or make a new friend today! Please join us this Friday, or another Friday in the future.
Clean up Juneau Day: May 7
Come out and do your part. Along with the rest of the community, PFLAG and SEAGLA will be picking up trash to clean up the most beautiful 2 mile section of highway in the borough, and we need your help! The more people we have the faster it goes. Please gather at 10 AM at the parking lot near Auke Lake. Bags and sanitary gloves will be provided. Wear bright clothes, as our goal includes putting a rainbow of color along the highway, for safety and for the message it conveys about diversity. We normally allow 2 hours, so the event will be over by noon, but generally gets done much quicker, most times by 11:30 AM, so please do not be late!
SEAGLA overnight camping adventure: May 28
Hike on the Auk Nu trail to beautiful John Muir cabin. 3 1/2 miles each way, 1600 elevation gain. Stunning views of Gastineau Channel and Douglas Island through picturesque meadows. Spend the night or hike in and out. Cabin sleeps 6 comfortably. Please RSVP with trip leader. Contact Kerri for more information, or email SEAGLA.
PRIDE Picnic at Sandy Beach: July 9
Specific details will be updated as the event approaches!! Generally, SEAGLA and PFLAG provide some grilled foods and ask people to bring what they would like to drink in non-glass containers, and a dish to share: salad, dessert or whatever appeals to you. If it is rainy, bring firewood too, as we have a shelter with the fireplace. There will be music and other games or activities, there is also a playground for kids. This info will be updated later as the date approaches, so check back to SEAGLA for more details about the summer events.
Please know that several hikes are currently being planned. Our friend Kerri has booked several cabins for this summer and will be hosting hikes to those locations. More details will be available on this soon. Also, there will be a gay men’s hike again this year. Details will be posted at SEAGLA when they are finalized, so please check there for updates.
