  1. Drum Circle

    June 17, 2021, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ The Buttonwood Tree

    Andrew Prue leads our Buttonwood drum circle, welcoming all persons. We encourage you to bring your own drum, and have some extras on hand if you don’t. Andrew brings shakers, tambourines, all sorts of percussion instruments, so don’t be shy, just come for fun! We will be meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays, at the Green on the corner of Main and Grand Street, just north of The Buttonwood Tree, in the same block. Parking is on Main Street (meters go until 6 pm), or at the CHC building. There is a $5 suggested donation to help support TBT and this program. While CDC rules have changed, masks not needed outdoors and the social distancing requirement lifted, we still care about everyone’s safety and ask participants to sign in. If you have any symptoms of Covid or have been exposed to it, please do not attend. We are graciously granted this space by the Community Health Center and the Deliverance Haven Church, our thanks to them!

Follow Millbrook Road for 1.5 miles and take a right onto Livingston Road. After 0.2 miles, take the first right off Livingston Road into McCutcheon Park! (Pg 31-33) Q Plus is grassroots, community-based, youth-led, and (at least for now) volunteer-run. We are a group of teens, young adults, and older adult supporters. We work to create more youth accessible spaces, uplift youth voices, and empower youth, through programs like open mics, “adulting crash course” workshops, game nights, support groups, and GSA meetups. Our overall goal is to create space for queer youth to be authentically and entirely themselves. Every event and program we create is born of a need identified by queer young people, rather than suggested by adults. Our plan is to continue changing and evolving as the needs of queer youth continue to change and evolve. For more information on QPlus, please check out their website:
