Come to solstice party this Sunday December 21 from 4-7.  We will make a solstice spiral to welcome in the light, sing Christmas songs, and have a potluck.

If anyone can contribute their talents of singing, performance, fire building, bringing your favorite dish or treat, plants or seeds to share. Or just bringing yourself would be awesome.

Bring your instruments, or food to grill and Byobeverage. You can RSVP on face book or send me an email to let me know if you know anyone who wants to entertain us. Thanks. Mary K Kraemer
