PFLAG Families to Join White House Easter Egg Roll

PFLAG is proud to be among a coalition of organizations, including the Family Equality Council, invited to participate in the 2009 White House Easter Egg Roll. On Monday morning, PFLAGers will join other families from across the country as President & Mrs. Obama host the annual celebration on the White House lawn.

"The White House Easter Egg Roll dates back to 1878 and is designed to encourage children and their families to come outdoors and celebrate the start of the spring season," whitehouse.gov reports. "The White House will open the South Lawn to children age ten and under, along with their families, to enjoy sports, cooking classes, live musical performances, storytelling and, of course, the traditional Easter egg roll."
