Pride Day 2013



That year found the Lorain Dude having a family helper – the other Lorain Dude.

They also found some familiar faces of the Lorain Rotary who have been volunteering at the Watch from the very first day!

Pride Day 2014– the Lorain Dudes were kept home by mum due to the terrible weather but that didn’t stop the faithful
ducks back

The area , thanks to Charleston Village Volunteers, Lorain Rotary, The City of Lorain looks cared for , beautiful and unique.
We would be remiss if we didn’t thank Mr. and Mrs. Perez of 6th Street and the Girl Scouts for the sign and V space for the Charleston Village sign – Thank you so much !!!

And finally another sunset – Settlers Watch- Lisa Miller

    Great photos Loraine–we were talking last night about when that area was basically a dump for couches, dryers, old tires ( almost 20 ), and so much trash we filled 2 large dumpsters in 2 years. ( ca 1993). It has come so far in the past 6 years but even more than that from the early Pride days in the 1990’s. We are all very proud of this area and what it signifies. Thanks everyone, Renee

    What a beautiful collection of the area’s progress, thanks to our talented photographers. Hard to believe the progress made in only 6 years by donations and mainly volunteers.

    yes time flies realized that when I was putting the post together and all the wonderful people who quietly volunteer and make a difference without fanfare. it is all their own work!!

    […] Loraine for the post […]

  • […] As I walked the pathway on Pride Day, I could not credit how far the area had progressed in the months and changing seasons since that […]
