Ark Valley Equality Network Events in August


The Ark Valley Equality Network is busy in August, with two events back-to-back!
First up, the August Spectrum Alliance Meet-Up is slated for Tuesday, August 13th from 6-8 p.m. at Fun Street Family Arcade. These casual, low-key social gatherings for the LGBTQIA+ community, their families and allies are always a good time. Bring a snack and a beverage to share! No RSVP required.
The next event is a new one: the first meeting of the Spectrum Book Club is happening the next night, Wednesday, August 14th, from 6-8 p.m. at The Book Haven (109 North F Street) in Salida. This first meeting will be to choose the inaugural reading selection; bring your favorite fiction/non-fiction LGBTQIA+-centric book to vote on. Snacks and drinks are always welcome, too! Space is limited at The Book Haven, so an RSVP is requested. To RSVP, go to, or text (719) 221-9893.
