Little by little an organization was formed, and in 2007 its doors opened under the sign, Paradise Pride, Inc.
Little by little Paradise Pride grew, and six years past, continues to do so. The organization has become “everything” I’d ever hoped for members … now and hopefully for a very, very long time.
When Pride members recently held a fundraising bake sale — intentionally kept a secret to surprise me — at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rush City, I felt hope as they helped breathe life into Paradise Pride’s longevity.
Someday when I look back on this memory, it will not be the total funds raised — grand as it is — that I will most remember. Rather, it will be the members’ smiling faces, and the gratitude I felt, that I’d most likely still talk about.
