A time to celebrate the coming of the light and bring us together to celebrate each other, the community we have built, and the adventures we will have together in the following seasons.

This is a participatory community event ...

- Everyone brings food to share (quantities to feed your family) (this IS a Feast). Beverages for yourself, and reusable dishware & cutlery (we hand wash all dishes at the Lodge).
- Everyone bring an Ornament for the communal tree.

- Artist - bring your artwork to put on view, play some music, help us create interesting and unique areas to dance/relax/chat/experience/etc in the lodge both in the Grand Lodge (upstairs) and in the Lower Lodge (main floor).

Tickets are $25; with a sliding scale for payment and many opportunities for volunteering/participation before, during, & after the event.
