    It was a lot of fun and a really good crowd. It was good to reunite with familiar friends and meet new ones. Lots and lots of delicious food too. The Organic Family Band was wonderful, playing a variety of folky type music. Those young kids are talented, serious musicians! And Bob Jacobson on clarinet, that secular Jewish cat can really swing! Hugh Taft-Morales gave an inspiring talk about the symbolism of light in the darkness. Overall the night was a great balance of serious and fun. Long live Reason, Compassion, and Hope!
