January 25 – The festival of Imbolc begins of February eve (January 31st) and usually concludes on February 2nd, the cross quarter day between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. George Smith will lead us in a celebration for the season of Imbolc, when the first stirrings of the new life of spring can be felt. Although the weather is still wintry, winter’s darkness begins to loosen its hold and new beginnings can be seen and felt.
The Imbolc Celebration will begin at 3:00 PM

February 8 – HAUSS greets Doug Clarke who will deepen our understanding of sustainability, a movement he has been actively involved in for over two decades. From the discussion we will discover ways in which we might lead a more sustainable lifestyle.
