GOLDEN THREADS is a celebration
for older Lesbians
in legendary Provincetown
celebration ACTIVITIES

If you're coming for the first time, the White Hat Ladies will welcome you and make you feel at home. Whether you're alone or partnered, new acquaintances and old friends will invite you to join them for dinner, a drink at the bar or a stroll into town. Meet new friends at the Early Bird Extra Activities, whale watch and lobster barbecue, on Wednesday.

Thursday afternoon is orientation and "Getting to Know You" with Joy and Judy, producers of the Golden Threads Celebration. The evening holds a very special entertainment event.

Friday, it's a warm-up, casual dance to the music of the 1940's. Bring your 40's style clothing and "smooth" dance to the oldies.

Saturday morning, Barbara Love facilitates the Pioneer Feminist Reunion, for lesbian/feminists active during the days of Women's Liberation. Saturday afternoon, it's belly dancing with Jamie Anderson and a theater performance by Marj Conn. Saturday is the big Dinner/Dance/Banquet where we dance and "swing" the night away. DJ MaryV offers Big Band, 50's rock n' roll, Motown, early disco and plenty of nice and slow.

During the day, you can join in workshops and discussion groups or just wander around Provincetown's fascinating shops and beautiful beaches
