5th Annual Spring Picnic a Success!

Our 5th Annual Spring Picnic was a wonderful success! Despite the occasional threat of rain, around 60 pagans joined together to both learn about the Earthhouse Project and to celebrate our Earthhouse community. With the skies only briefly dark, we enjoyed pleasant weather.

With Lou as our expert at the grill, food was aplenty and we all enjoyed a virtually endless supply of hotdogs and other picnic fare. Later in the evening, there was marshmallow toasting as many gathered around the campfire.
