Fern Notice

This time of year is busy for everyone, but if you'd like to stop by and celebrate another ride around the sun with Fernando Zweifach López Jr they'll be at their favorite spot in town, insideOUT for a little birthday happy hour. Mark D. Maddox will also be celebrating his birthday at A Very Fernie Birthday at insideOUT. Fernando says they have all we need, so please no gifts, no drinks, or shots. What makes them happy and fuels their souls is serving their community, so please consider making a special birthday donation in their birthdays to Tracie Jada O'Brien Transgender Student Scholarship Fund! 

Fernando will personally be donating $500 towards underwriting a scholarship, and hope you will consider making a contribution as well.
