All are welcome to participate, including kids (must be 21+ to receive adult beverages - bring your ID!). Costumes are encouraged! Camps: Decorate your camp, have some sort of light or something to denote that you are "open for business," and have things to offer both adults and children, such as chocolates, candy, snacks, lemonade for minors, wine, margaritas, etc. Trick-or-Treaters: Bring your own (tiny) cup (and ID) and a bag for goodies, and bring a flashlight and/or wear something lighted so you can find your way and others can see you (it's dark out there!). What if you want to do BOTH - offer treats and walk around? Simple! Take turns with camp-mates, or just walk around with the group until you get to your camp, then offer your own goodies to the trick-or-treaters. 1 hour.

Guided Meditation in Grounding Techniques - by Ivee
We will have a guided meditation to experience multiple ways to ground personal energies and/or release the negative energies from ourselves. This class activity will involve laying on the ground...so bring a blanket of some sort and pillow if you wish. Due to the nature of guided journeys, this will be an "adult only" activity (old enough to lay quietly for an hour). Participants will need to maintain a peaceful concentration without distraction. Often journeys will leave a participant very thirsty and/or hungry, come prepared. Also I am limiting this activity to about 10 people, so there will be a sign up sheet posted. Class will be held on Shire Rock.
(Sat, 11:00 am)

Raising Pagan Children in the Bible Belt - by Trillium
Though we love the South, living here as Pagans certainly carries it's challenges - challenges which are often multiplied when we have children who we are raising in this community. Let's have a chat about how we've handled some of those challenges and concerns. This is intended to be more of a discussion forum than a class, and parents with children of all ages - or those who hope to be parents in the semi-near future - are welcome to come share their experiences and ideas, as well as offer or seek support.

Attracting and Feeding Birds with Native Plants - by Jan Newton
Come enjoy a PowerPoint presentation featuring photos of and information about native plants that attract and provide food and shelter for birds. Many birds depend on native plants (and the insects that eat and reproduce on them) for survival and our native plants offer our native and migrating birds better nutrition and more benefits than most non-native look-a-likes. Learn how layering native plants in your yard and adding more species of native plants to your garden will allure and feed more species of birds.

(Sun, 9:00 am) GIVE-AWAY
The Give Away will act as our closing ceremony. Please bring something that is special to you, or has brought something good to you, that you are now ready to pass on to someone else. This gift doesn't have to be something physical; it can be an offer of help or service. Once something is given away, all strings to that gift are broken; the gift is given with no expectations. Each person will take a turn to talk about their item and its meaning, then place it on the blanket. Once all items are laid down, if you see something that speaks to you, and no one else wants it, you may take it. 30 minutes.
