Greetings everyone, Seattle Pagan Pride was awesome and what I saw as a great success. I'm doing a mid-month newsletter as well, as we have new events to add and more information to out out.
Next event now is 19 September Pagan Coffee again at Whidbey Coffee in the Burlington Mall from noon-2.
Forest Moon is sponsoring a Celia concert here in Mount Vernon. It will be at the Mount Vernon Unitarian Church 26 September from 6PM-8PM Tickets are 12$ in advance or 15$ at the door. If your not familiar with Celia you can hear her music at her website www.celiaonline.com Hope to see many of you there.
Now, Oct 2 is the Bellingham Pagan Pride Darrin still needs vendors, workshop teachers, and groups to do rituals and this is coming right around the corner, Oct 2 from noon-6PM at the Bellingham Unitarian Church, I will have a booth there for Forest Moon and will be giving a workshop on Pagans in the Military and how you can support them etc. Should be a fun day. Email me asap if there's anything you can do to help or vend etc. Also, on the note of Pagan Pride if we get the proper permission Mount Vernon will be holding Pagan Pride for 2011 at the Skagit Valley Fairgrounds I will be locking that in soon as well, we will coordinate with Paul and Katt of the Seattle Pagan Pride so there are no conflicts.
Oct 23 is the TERRA Tacoma Witches Ball starting at 6:00 PM at the VFW on Mckinley Ave in Tacoma. Tickets are 25$ Single/35$ Couple in advance and/or 25$ at the door.
Now, Oct 30 is going to be a busy day at Mystic Wonder all day. When the store opens we will have a Pagan Troop support packaging day, getting all the donations we have and putting them in boxes to ship out to our Troops we have on our list. Again, if you are deployed or know of someone deployed thats Pagan get me there address so we can get them added to the support list. Also, if you have stuff to donate to the Troops, if you are North of Seattle bring it to Pagan coffee on the 19th or call and we'll coordinate pick-up, 360-848-8515 for Eric or Ashley, if you live South of Seattle take it to Mystic Wonder 5505 Steilacoom Blvd Lakewood WA 98499 and his store phone is 253-584-4875. Troop support day will go from 11AM-1PM followed by DJ Conway's book signing from 1-3 followed by a potluck and a concert at 4 with Green Fay. There will also be a costume contest and lots of fun in general.
Coffee itinerary will include discussion about the Forest Moon Church building ideas and we are discussing committees. We will be needing committee leaders for the Prison Ministry, Homeless Closet, and we will still have our kids group when we get kids into the group enough to start it up. Also, be discussing Pagan Pride and ideas for future events we will sponsor.
I wrote an article for Pagan Pages which will be out in October and that will be the beginning of our column, anyone with topic ideas they want written about let me know.
I hope this finds everyone doing well, Ashley and Cheyanne are doing great, the pregnancy is going smooth and we will all get to meet her sometime in November, we will be having a baby shower in October date to be announced. Dec 18 is our projected Forest Moon Yule party more will also follow on that as the time approaches. We are getting steady eggs fro the chickens now and the garden is finishing up its crops, the pumpkins are looking great. Blessings.
Eric and Ashley.
We do have a network site at www.forestmoon.spruz.com it has chat-room capability and we'll announce events on the site as well. Our current calendar is as follows:
In closing here is the mission and goals of Forest Moon as written in our Articles:
The Mission of this organization shall be to provide a safe, open environment for the Pagan
Community to gather and practice their faith; educate and prepare the children of our community in
their Pagan Faith, as well as necessary life skills; and hold events to bring the community together in
support of unity.
The goals of this organization shall be:
1. To raise awareness of Paganism in the community, by:
Holding educational events open to the public (i.e. Pagan Pride)
And creating an open, welcoming environment
2. To Educate the children of our faith and provide them a safe outlet to express
themselves and learn about their religion.
. Establish Forest Moon Tribe; a children's scouts' group. We take on children aged 4-
18 and teach them basic survival skills, camping, fishing, swimming, as well as
spiritual awareness of all the pagan paths, elemental work, spell-craft and ritual
structuring, etc. As well as getting the children involved in Community Volunteer
3. To Provide an open environment for the Pagan Community to gather and practice their
faith with others of like-minded belief.
Establish a weekly meeting for local Pagans to come together and discuss general
life topics in the Pagan community.
Establish Forest Moon Sanctuary, which will be a Sanctuary in Skagit Valley, WA. It
will be a self-sustaining green-living community, set up as an education center and
working farm, so groups can come out to worship on untouched land, hold events,
and have a sense of safe, pagan community.
4. To Provide support to those in need in our community.
Establish a Homeless Closet, through donations, to provide clothing and kitchen
essentials to those in need.
Establish a Prison Ministry to go to the local Prisons and minister to the Pagan
5. To support our Pagan Soldiers while they are in a hostile environment and ensure they
have the materials they need to continue their faith while away, by:
Holding supply drives to gather the necessary materials to send to the Troops
Holding fundraisers to raise money to buy the supplies needed to send to the
deployed Pagan Military personnel.
Working to get symbols approved for Military headstones through the VA for
Druids, Asatru, and the Goddess symbol.
Encouraging the DOD to approve a Pagan Chaplain in support of our Pagan Troops
. Assist in Equal Opportunity problems that may occur with the Pagan Military
We do have a paypal for donations anyone wishes to send for expenditures but as a church nothing in way of dues or membership fees will ever be asked. Our paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org . Will keep you all informed as things progress and we enjoy hearing from everyone. Hope to see everyone Sept 19 at Pagan Coffee and again, let us know if you need a ride to Pride Sept 12..
