My letter usually talks about challenges that our community faces or an accomplishment we are enjoying. This time is all happy and all good. We’re having a party and hope you can be there.

Our annual “All Americans” on Friday, July 28 is bigger and better than ever. Four food trucks, three full bars, karaoke (with $500 in cash prizes,) a photo booth and lots of gayness and merriment are on the menu that is all about "community unity." And talent has absolutely nothing to do with winning the big karaoke cash as everyone who sings gets their name in the drawing.

Thank you to SunTrust for sponsoring the event. Thanks also to Genworth for sponsoring the karaoke contest; Karaoke with Jason and Friends for donating karaoke services; AARP for making the photo booth possible and Mongrel for the donation of a $100 door prize.

See you soon, rain or shine!
