"Weaving the Web of Community" September 7th, 2013 – Telulah Park, Appleton WI
Our Spirit Fair on April 13th was a huge success, and a metric ton of fun! It was wonderful to see so many new faces, and of course, catch up with the familiar ones. The day started out a bit slowly, thanks to the winter we’re having this spring, and it’s ability to create hazardous conditions on the highways. Thankfully everyone arrived safely! But once Mother Nature decided to settle, things picked up quite nicely Our readers were booked most of the day (we’re sorry if anyone had a long wait for their reading. The readers like to be thorough and make sure everyone gets the messages they need. Sometimes that requires a few extra minutes.) and our vendors seemed to always have people viewing their wares. The bake sale went over very well, hope everyone enjoyed the yummy goodness!
A big THANK YOU to everyone that helped make our fundraiser possible! Special thanks to the Fox Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and The Gathering Circle for hosting our event After fees and supplies, we made $716.39 to go towards this year’s Pagan Pride Day in Telulah Park on September 7th. We couldn’t have done it without you!
In other news, now that we have our date set for this year’s Pagan Pride Day, we’ll be starting to get to work on plans for the big day! Stay tuned for information on info booths and vending, workshops, rituals and of course, volunteer opportunities

We had a great time at the Madison Area Pagan Pride Day yesterday! The weather couldn’t have been more beautiful, an awesome day to be outdoors with wonderful pagan/pagan friendly folk. Thanks to the MADPP for inviting us to promote ourselves and our upcoming plans for the upcoming year, and to all the wonderful folks that stopped by our booth. We saw lots of familiar faces and lots of new ones too, got lots of hugs, and really enjoyed watching the looks of happiness on people’s faces when they sampled our yummy baked goodness (note to self, make more peanut butter cookies next time…).
Our new banner also made it’s debut this weekend! What a perfect way to “come out”, at a fellow Pagan Pride event, showing our support!
Hope to see some of you at the Witches Ball next month!
