    Roanoke Diversity Center Grand Re-Opening & 4th Year Anniversary
    Saturday, February 25, 2017 at 04:00 PM · 5 rsvps
    Roanoke Diversity Center in Roanoke, VA

    This is not just an ordinary anniversary, it will also be the RDC's Grand Re-Opening Celebration. This free event will feature a ribbon-cutting, live musical entertainment, hors d'oeuvres, and a presentation about what all the RDC offers and where it is heading! 

    After over six months of planning, cleaning, and setting up, the RDC has completed its expansion and has now grown more than double its original size! Join us and tour our two large media rooms (perfect for small and large group meetings and events), featuring a large-screen smart television in one room, a high definition projector and a twelve-foot screen in each room, desktop and laptop computers, refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee pots in each room, wifi, and numerous resources. The RDC is also the new home of the Ricketson-Harris-Verkruisen LGBT Library, the area's only LGBTQ+ library, featuring a smaller meeting space (for about 12 people) and a large collection of over 3000 new, rare, and historical LGBTQ books!   
    Please join us for a fun evening and get to know your LGBTQ+ Community Center!
