We will be celebrating Imbolc this year with a day of fun and knowledge.
The craft activity for the day is creating the Bride's Bed and Bride for the ritual later that day. Add your energy to that by being there in time for the craft activity. It is fun for both adults and children. (Parents please note that we ask that you help your children with the craft activities. We get outnumbered very quickly if you all leave your children at the table while going on to socialize)
Kieran Nightstar will be presenting a workshop on the three aspects of the Goddess Brigid. Kieran is a 2nd degree Priestess, Usui Reiki Master/Teacher, and 2nd level Karuna Reiki practitioner. You can find her writings on Tattooed Pagan Mom and is known at festivals for her quality handmade incense.
Ritual will be after dark (it will be cold outside so dress appropriately)
Potluck feast inside the covenstead.
Please bring any equipment and/or dishware and serving ware you need for your dish. The kitchen has not been stocked yet with dishes, serving ware, cutlery, potholders, etc. There is one electric range with limited room on the stove and in the oven so please don't plan on cooking your dish there. There is a microwave that can also be used for warming if your dish is in a microwave safe dish.
The theme of the potluck revolves around baking, butter, milk and anything using grains.
Choose the selection that matches the first letter of your last name.
A-E - Meat dish

NGS is working hard to become self sufficient financially this year. We have an ongoing fundraiser of scrap metal. This can be large items such as appliances or small items like aluminum or tin cans. We've taken metal plumbing, wiring, light fixtures, pots and pans, metal home decor items and all kinds of other things as donations. Look around and before you put something out with the trash, if it is metal, think of NGS and bring it with you the next time you come.
A note about the venue - Silver Pines is located in Rockmart, GA. GPS and map sites will get you to Hwy 278. We are on the west bound side of Hwy 278 behind the Discount Mattress and Furniture Store. There is an empty pasture east of the furniture store with a driveway running between. Turn into the driveway and follow it all the way up the hill to the white brick house on the right. Park along the straight part of the driveway on the right across from the section with the bird bath. If you have something to unload we'll have a garden cart available to make it easy and there will be people willing help. Please do not pull around the cones. This section of the drive is set aside as a safe place for the children to play.
We ask that no one bring pets. This decision was made after much thought was given to the liability issues involved as well as the comfort level and safety of the guests and the pets that live on the property. The cons far outweighed the pros, so please leave your pets in the safety and comfort of their own home.
There are 10 1/2 acres of fun and safety hazards. Children need to be supervised at all times to keep them from climbing trees and going down to the pond or disappearing into the woods near the trolls. So help us keep your children safe and watch them while they are here. Feel free to bring toys for them to play with. We have some donated toys they can play with as well.
We are bringing back the Sacred Service sign-up. There will be a sign-up sheet at the registration table. We will be asking everyone to sign up to assist in some way during the day.
