    Miller-Keystone Blood Center in Allentown , PA

    Bleed and Feed

    It's well past time for us to do our part for the community blood bank.
    Let's get out there and save some lives. It's pretty quick, and amazingly easy to give. If this date doesn't work for you, please go when you can at any of Miller-Keystone's locations and give them our group code #7789. They usually ask in the little room where they check you in.

    As always, to help out there is a pre-registration procedure that will make things go more smoothly. First, you should call Miller-Keystone to get an appointment time between 9:00am and 1:00pm Saturday August 18th at 800-B-A-DONOR (223-6667). Then, on the day of your appointment, go to their online screening at https://www.giveapint.org/iScreen and preregister. Then show up at Cedar Crest Professional Park, 1255 S Cedar Crest Blvd # 1300, Allentown, PA to donate. Please give group code #7789 for LVH when they check you in so your donation will add to our total. Walk-ins are also welcome, but it will take a little time.

    After we donate we'll head across the parking lot to Penn Pizza for a bite. It's a nice place with outstanding food at a good price.

    Table with LVH at Pride in the Park

    It is time for PRIDE IN THE PARK, and LVH will be there to show our support!

    The Pride in the Park Festival acknowledges the achievements and progress made in and by the local queer community and beyond. Lehigh Valley's Pride festival has been a vibrant community event since 1993. In 2017, Pride of the Greater Lehigh Valley merged with Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.

    The event includes vendors, merchants, artisans, business services and community groups, games and live entertainment. Pride in the Park has grown to include over 4,000 attendees. 

    The annual LGBT Pride in the Park Festival is a great opportunity to support our community and let them know about LVH. We'll be tabling at the event all day from Noon to 6:00 p.m. If you're new to LVH, please stop by. We'd love to have some long-term members sign up for 1 or 2 hour shifts during that time to be with our leadership at the table. If you know what time you can help, please comment!

    Note: This is not an LVH-run event.

    Admission: $5, children ages 12 and under free, youth 14-21 can earn a free ticket to pride through participation in Project SILK.

    Book Club - A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership by James Comey

    From Macmillan Publishers:

    In his book, former FBI director James Comey shares his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government, exploring what good, ethical leadership looks like, and how it drives sound decisions. His journey provides an unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader.

    Mr. Comey served as director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017, appointed to the post by President Barack Obama. He previously served as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, and the U.S. deputy attorney general in the administration of President George W. Bush. From prosecuting the Mafia and Martha Stewart to helping change the Bush administration's policies on torture and electronic surveillance, overseeing the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation as well as ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey has been involved in some of the most consequential cases and policies of recent history.

    Paul will be moderating this month. Hope you can join us for some thoughtful discussion.

    Upcoming books:

    September - The Value of Nothing: How to Reshape Market Society and Redefine Democracy by Raj Patel (moderated by Steve)
    October - The Blind Assassin: A Novel by Margaret Atwood (moderated by Richard)

    September is book selection month for November, December, and January. Please bring a book to recommend.
