Solstice marks the beginning of summer and the longest days of the year. This was also considered "midsummer" in earlier times as farmers had done their planting by this date. Solstice was honored by earlier cultures such as the one which gave birth to Stonehenge--where the main axis aligns with rising sun on Solstice morning. This is a good time to give thanks for the light and warmth of summer. From this point forward, the days begin to grow shorter!
We will begin with our usual potluck meal at 6:30 pm, and head out to a consecrated fire afterwards. Please bring a dish for the potluck meal. If you would like to toast the Solstice, bring a drink to share after we close the fire later in the evening. We hope you will join us in marking this important transition in the seasons!
