Mora couple receives Lavender Community Award

Phil-and-Barb-Schroeder

The recipients of the Lavender Community Awards were nominated and voted for online November, 2017.  Barb and Phil Schroeder of Mora were selected winners due to their demonstrated clear dedication and leadership by being either out or an ally, and working for the advancement of the community that is comprised of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied people.  They were featured in Lavender Magazine.

The iconic PFLAG Popcorn Wagon

As proud parents of children in the rainbow community, the Schroeder’s have devoted time and work to East Central Minnesota PFLAG. “East Central Minnesota PFLAG is an all-volunteer organization that provides support for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning persons (and those who are perceived to be), their families and friends by being a visible presence in communities across the five-county region of east central Minnesota.

I’m more than proud of the GLBT community in East Central Minnesota.  They all work very hard every year to put together the Pine City Pride Picnic. The event is growing in attendance and fun each year.

-Dennis Burns, owner of DB Signs in Pine City

More fun each year

You wouldn’t believe how many gay people live around here.  I have a lot of local clients who are gay.
