From the SWTX RM Team-MFSA Pride Parade Organizing Team:
“We are looking forward to a wonderful Pride Parade. We are expecting at least 150 Methodists to march this year, a significant increase over last year’s 44. Please bear with us as we “gear up” to meet the challenges of organizing this larger group. Please contact us with any questions or concerns. THANK YOU for your support!!”
