Please take the time to read this! Hi guys! Our boy’s basketball team is ranked #2 in the nation. They are playing in New York at MSG from APRIL 3- APRIL 6. The boys are sponsored by Nike, Dick’s sporting goods and various other companies. There are 8 high school basketball teams and all the high school cheer squads were invited, unfortunately, we are on our own when it comes to getting there. We have been doing fundraisers like crazy and we’re almost at our goal. If you or anyone you know have a couple dollars to share, please donate to our gofundme account. If not, all I’m asking is for a reblog. I would greatly appreciate the help for getting the news out there. Our go fund me is entitled: “Rainier Beach Cheer Squad to New York!” Or the link is gofundme.com/7ibqi4

Thank you again. Much love and appreciation on behalf of my cheer sisters and I!

Thank You, TASTY, and: Next up, Rainier Beach Art Walk...

Had a great time at the TASTY opening this past Friday - if you haven’t gone by, do - it’s one of the funnest, coolest galleries going in Seattle.

And next up, the Rainier Beach Art Walk:

I’ll be here this Saturday, September 17, 11am - 3pm. The link has all the info - sounds like a great combination of art, food, fun, and more for all ages -

and I’ve made a lotta new blockhead / pioneers the last few weeks - come see brand new pieces unveiled. The last new piece got sold BEFORE the Bits ‘n Pieces show even opened at TASTY.

“It’s important to us that we are open to all people,” said Monica Corsaro, pastor at Rainier Beach United Methodist Church, in a statement. “It’s a part of our values that the spirit of inclusion is also reflected in the Boy Scout Troop we charter. The congregation stands with Geoff, because his work with this troop reflects the spirit and the values of Rainier Beach United Methodist Church.”

The Boy Scouts of America, in an April 17 letter, told an attorney representing [troop leader Geoff] McGrath and the troop that the church was no longer allowed to house a Boy Scouts troop.

The Boy Scouts have revoked the charter of RBUMC, according to the Seattle PI.

To be honest, seeing the headline “National Boy Scouts strip Seattle charter due to support of gay leader,” I was disappointed that BSA didn’t just strip the whole city. Because then we could be like, good the fuck riddance, Boy Scouts.

Of course, the State Legislature is nicer than we are. 39 reps signed a letter throwing their support behind Geoff, saying that being an asshole like that pretty much defeats the whole point of Boy Scouts. Good on you, 39 state reps!
