Is It Hard To Stay Up?
Together we are creating vibrant community
Too often we're embarrassed to ask questions regarding our urological health. Move beyond that embarrassment and join Lance Walsh, MD for a frank discussion on prostate health and Erectile Dysfunction.

What do men do when Erectile Dysfunction pills aren't effective? Don't like the idea of expensive penile injections, suppositories, and vacuum pumps? Get the facts on an inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP): a permanent solution - covered by many insurance plans - which allows an erection as often as you like, for as long as you wish.

This is a FREE event but space is limited.
Registration is requested.
Flying High – in Photos!
WOW. What a heckuva night! Thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, restaurants, and 1000+ folks who helped us ensure a little water wouldn’t rain our red parade last Saturday. It was a truly magical evening for everyone involved, and now you can relive the night with photos! Check out the photos from David A. Lee Photography, Corlyce Photography, and the SocialLight Photobooths.
Thank you to our Sponsors!

In one of Tennessee Williams' most haunting pieces of writing, how far will a mother go to preserve her son's reputation?

Get your Boot Scootin' Boogie going @ Chill Bar, Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 7:30 PM. Two-Step, Waltz and Line Dances. $5 Admission
Martin—a hugely successful architect who has just turned fifty—leads an ostensibly ideal life with his loving wife and gay teenage son. But when he confides to his best friend that he is also in love with a goat (named Sylvia), he sets in motion events that will destroy his family and leave his life in tatters.

Adults only. No children under 18 allowed at this performance.

It is ironic that talking about death leaves us feeling good. Join us for cake and conversation.
