Midsummer Ritual & Picnic

Join us on Saturday, June 15th at 3pm, as we celebrate Midsummer and the Summer Solstice, followed by a picnic-style feast. Bring your energy and a spirit of fellowship into our community as we turn the wheel of the year once more!

If weather permits, we will be outdoors. We recommend that if you own any camp chairs, stadium chairs, backjack chairs, or any other sort of portable seating that you'd bring to a workshop or an outdoor event, bring those along if you think you'll be more comfortable when sitting on the ground.

IMPORTANT PICNIC INFORMATION

After you RSVP, please choose from among the foods / drinks listed below, and message Marge with your choice. This way, we can make sure we have a diverse selection of things to eat and drink. Message Marge here.

We would like to see light, easy, pre-cooked, "portable" foods for this event: things people can eat while walking around and socializing! Choose from this list (or if you want to make or bring something special, please check with Marge):
