SALISBURY, N.C. — PFLAG-Salisbury chapter will play host to the national organization’s North Carolina/South Carolina Leadership Conference this week.

On Saturday, April 26, more than 50 participants, as well as PFLAG national officers, will descend on this sleepy hometown of regional grocery store giant Food Lion. The event will be hosted at Haven Lutheran Church.

The local PFLAG is also the recipient of a $3,000 grant from Charleston’s Alliance for Full Acceptance. According to group president Todd Adrian, the money will be used for youth outreach in Salisbury and the surrounding rural areas.
